1x Rapid Antibody Test - Edinburgh GeneticsCode: 1043
Product detailed description
The test card contains (1) colloidal gold- labeled recombinant novel coronavirus antigen and quality control antibody colloidal gold marker, (2) two detection lines (G and M lines) and one quality control line (C) fixed on a nitrocellulose membrane. M is fixed with monoclonal anti-human IgM antibody for detecting the novel coronavirus IgM antibody. G is fixed with monoclonal antihuman IgG antibody for detecting the novel coronavirus IgG antibody. The quality control antibody is fixed on the C line. When an appropriate amount of test sample is added to the sample well of the test cassette, the sample will move forward along the test card via capillary action. If the sample contains IgM antibody, the antibody will bind to the colloidal gold labeled novel coronavirus antigen. The antibody/antigen complex will be captured by the anti-human IgM antibody immobilised on the membrane, forming a red M line and indicating a positive result for the IgM antibody. If the sample contains IgG antibodies, the antibody will bind to the colloidal gold-labeled novel coronavirus antigen and the antibody/antigen complex will be captured by the antibody immobilised on the membrane, forming a red G line and indicating a positive result for the IgG antibody. If neither antibody is present, a negative result is displayed. The card also contains a quality control line (C). Regardless of the antibodies present (or not) the C line should appear to indicate that the sample has been transported properly through the membrane. If the C line does not appear it indicates that the test result is invalid and a new, unopened test cassette is required to retest the sample.
Place the test cartridge on a clean, flat surface. Take a blood sample (from a finger) into the pipette. Add two drops of blood sample to the well of the test cassette and then add 1 drop of buffer. Set your time, read the test result in 15 minutes. Attention! The result read after 20 minutes or more may not be accurate.
A total of three detection lines are possible, with the control (C) line appearing when the sample has flowed through the cassette.
Negative result: If only the quality control line (C) appears and the detection lines G and M are not visible, then no new coronavirus antibody has been detected and the result is negative.
Positive result, IgM only: If the quality control line (C) and also the detection line M appear, then the IgM antibody of the new coronavirus has been detected and the result is positive for IgM antibody.
Positive result, IgG only: If the quality control line (C) as well as the detection line G appear, then the IgG antibody of the new coronavirus has been detected and the result is positive for IgG antibody.
Positive result, IgG and IgM: If the quality control line (C) as well as both detection lines G and M appear, then IgG and IgM antibodies of the new coronavirus were detected and the result is positive for both IgG and IgM antibodies.
Test features: Easy to use. Fast results in just 15 minutes. whole blood, serum or plasma test tubes. The results are read visually. No analyzer needed. Storage temperature: 2-30 ° C
Suitable for human serum, plasma, or whole blood samples (capillary or venous) including samples prepared by commonlyused anticoagulants (EDTA, heparin, sodium citrate).
Serum and plasma samples can be stored at 2-8°C for 5 days.
If long-term storage of serum or plasma samples is required, store at -20°C and avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
