Do you think you had the coronavirus? Do you still have it? Test yourself in just 10 minutes with over 99% reliability!
This kit uses immunochromatography. The test card contains:
- A colloidal antigen labeled gold recombining the new coronavirus.
- Two detection lines (lines G and M) and a quality control line (line C) on a nitrocellulose membrane.
Line M is immobilized with an anti-human IgM monoclonal antibody to detect a new anti-coronavirus IgM antibody. Line G is immobilized with a reagent to detect a new IgG antibody from coronavirus. Line C is immobilized with a quality control antibody.
If the test lines G and M are not colored, a negative result is displayed. The test card contains a quality control line C. The fuchsia quality control line C must appear regardless of whether a test line appears or not. The quality control line is a colored band of the immunological control antibody. If the quality control line C does not appear, the test result is not valid and the sample must be retested with another test card. The 2019-nCOV IgG / IgM Rapid Test Device was compared to an advanced commercial RT-PCR test using clinical samples. The results show that the 2019-nCoV IgG / IgM rapid test device has high sensitivity and specificity.
When an appropriate amount of blood and buffer fluid is added to the test card sample hole, the sample will move along the test card by capillary action. If the sample contains an IgM antibody, the antibody will bind to the new coronavirus antigen. The immunological complex will be captured by the anti-human IgM antibody immobilized on the membrane to form a purple-red M line, showing that the new IgM antibody against the coronavirus is positive. If the sample contains an IgG antibody, the antibody will bind to the new coronavirus antigen and the immune complex will be captured by the reagent immobilized on the membrane to form a purple-red G line, indicating that the new IgG antibody against the coronavirus is positive.
Sensitivity: 96% Specificity: 100% Overall reliability: 98%
