HAV IgG/IgM Rapid Test
The One Step HAV IgG/IgM Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies (IgG and IgM) to Hepatitis A Virus (HAV) in Whole Blood /Serum / Plasma to aid in the diagnosis of Hepatitis A Virus.
Hepatitis A is an acute, usually self-limiting disease of the liver caused by hepatitis A virus (HAV). HAV is transmitted from person to person, primarily by the faecal-oral route. The incidence of hepatitis A is closely related to socioeconomic development, and seroepidemiological studies show that prevalence of anti-HAV antibodies in the general population varies from 15% to close to 100% in different parts of the world. One step HAV IgG/IgM Test is a simple, visual qualitative test that detects Hepatitis A Virus antibodies in human Whole Blood /Serum / Plasma. The test is based on immunochromatography and can give a result within 15 minutes.
The One Step HAV IgG/IgM Test is a qualitative membrane strip based immunoassay for the detection of Hepatitis A Virus antibodies (IgG and IgM) in Whole Blood /Serum / Plasma. The test device consists of: 1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing HAV recombinant envelope antigens conjugated with Colloid gold (HAV conjugates) and rabbit IgG-gold conjugates,2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing two test bands (T1 and T2 bands) and a control band (C band). The T1 band is pre-coated with the antibody for the detection of IgM anti-HAV, T2 band is coated with antibody for the detection of IgG anti-HAV, and the C band is pre-coated with goat anti rabbit IgG. When an adequate volume of test specimen is dispensed into the sample well of the test cassette, the specimen migrates by capillary action across the cassette. IgG anti-HAV, if present in the specimen, will bind to the HAV conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured by the reagent pre-coated on the T2 band, forming a burgundy colored T2 band, indicating a HAV IgG positive test result and suggesting a recent or repeat infection. IgM anti-HAV if present in the specimen will bind to the HAV conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured by the reagent coated on the T1 band, forming a burgundy colored T1 band, indicating a HAV IgM positive test result and suggesting a fresh infection. Absence of any T bands (T1 and T2) suggests a negative result. The test contains an internal control (C band) which should exhibit a burgundy colored band of the immunocomplex of goat anti rabbit IgG/rabbit IgG-gold conjugate regardless of the color development on any of the T bands. Otherwise, the test result is invalid and the specimen must be retested with another device.
