Coronavirus (COVID-19) IgM/IgG Rapid Test Kit
COVID-19 Human IgM/IgG Rapid Test provides a fast, convenient, and qualitative testing of human whole blood, plasma, and serum for COVID-19 IgM and IgG.
A rapid test for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human whole blood, serum or plasma specimens. For professional in vitro diagnostic use only. The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human whole blood, serum or plasma specimen.
The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) consists of two components, an IgG component and an IgM component. In the IgG component, anti-human IgG is coated in IgG test line region. During testing, the specimen reacts with SARS-CoV-2 antigen-coated particles in the test cassette. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with the anti-human IgG in IgG test line region, if the specimen contains IgG antibodies to 2019-nCoV. A coloured line will appear in IgG test line region as a result of this.
Similarly, anti-human IgM is coated in IgM test line region and if the specimen contains IgM antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the conjugate-specimen complex reacts with anti-human IgM. A coloured line appears in IgM test line region as a result. Therefore, if the specimen contains 2019-nCoV IgG antibodies, a coloured line will appear in IgG test line region. If the specimen contains SARS-CoV-2 IgM antibodies, a coloured line will appear in IgM test line region. If the specimen does not contain SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, no coloured line will appear in either of the test line regions, indicating a negative result.
To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line should always appear in the control line region, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred
