The Test Card is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the in vitro qualitative detection of N-protein antigen from 2019-nCoV in human saliva specimens. The Test Card can be used for individuals with or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 infection. A positive result indicates 2019-nCoV infection, Please quarantine yourself and contact a doctor. Additional testing is necessary. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. A negative result should be treated as presumptive. It do not rule out 2019-nCoV infection. Negative results should be considered in the context of a patient’s recent exposures, history, and the presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Contact a doctor and Confirm with a PCR test, if necessary.
For in vitro use only. Suitable for self-testing use.
Summary and Explanation
The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.
Principle of the Test
This Test Card uses double-antibody sandwich to legally detect the antigen of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in saliva samples. During detection, the gold labeled anti-2019-nCoV monoclonal antibody in the labeling pad binds to the 2019-nCoV antigen in the sample to form a complex, and the reaction complex moves forward along the nitrocellulose membrane under the action of chromatography, it is captured by the anti-2019-nCoV monoclonal antibody pre-coated by the Test area (T) on the nitrocellulose membrane, and finally a red color reaction line is formed in the Test area (T). If the sample does not contain 2019-nCoV antigen, a red color reaction line cannot be formed in the Test area (T). Regardless of whether the sample to be tested contains 2019-nCoV antigen, a red reaction line will always form in the quality Control area (C), if the test has been performed properly.
