Malaria IgG/IgM Antibody Assay Kit (Colloidal Gold)
1 Test/Kit, 20 Tests/Kit, 25 Tests/Kit, 40 Tests/Kit
The Malaria IgG/IgM Antibody Assay Kit (Colloidal Gold) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies including IgG, IgM and IgA to Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) in human serum or plasma. This device is intended to be used by professionals as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with Plasmodium falciparum. Any reactive specimen with the Malaria IgG/IgM Antibody Assay Test Kit (Colloidal Gold) must be confirmed with alternative testing methods such as the microscopic smear test and clinical findings.
【PRINCIPLE OF THE PROCEDURE】
The Malaria IgG/IgM Test Kit (Colloidal Gold) is a double antigen based lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The test strip consists of: 1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing recombinant Pf-MSP conjugated with colloid gold (Pf conjugates) and rabbit IgG-gold conjugates, 2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing one test band (T band) and a control band (C band). The T band is pre- coated with recombinant Pf -MSP for the detection of antibodies to Pf only and the C band is pre- coated with goat anti rabbit IgG.
When an adequate volume of test specimen is applied to the sample pad of the strip, the specimen migrates by capillary action across the strip. Antibodies including IgG, IgM and IgA against Pf-MSP, only found in P. falciparum infection, if present in the specimen will bind to the Pf conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured on the membrane by the pre-coated Pf-MSP, forming a burgundy colored T band, indicating a Pf positive test result.
Absence of a T band (T) suggests a negative result. The test contains an internal control (C band) which should exhibit a burgundy colored band of goat anti-rabbit IgG/rabbit IgG-gold conjugate immunocomplex regardless of the color development on the T band. Otherwise, the test result is invalid and the specimen must be retested with another device.
