Chlamydia infection has been diagnosed by detection of Chlamydia inclusions in tissue culture cells. Culture method is the most sensitive and specific laboratory method, but it is labor intensive, expensive, long (48-72 hours) and not routinely available in most institutions.
The Chlamydia Rapid Test Device (Swab/Urine) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect the Chlamydia antigen from female cervical swab, male urethral swab and male urine specimens, providing results in 10 minutes. The test utilizes antibody specific for Chlamydia to selectively detect Chlamydia antigen from female cervical swab, male urethral swab and male urine specimens.
The Chlamydia Rapid Test Device (Swab/Urine) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Chlamydia antigen from female cervical swab, male urethral swab and male urine specimens. In this test, antibody specific to the Chlamydia antigen is coated on the test line region of the test. During testing, the extracted antigen solution reacts with an antibody to Chlamydia that is coated onto particles. The mixture migrates up to react with the antibody to Chlamydia on the membrane and generate a colored line in the test line region. The presence of this colored line in the test line region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
The test device contains Chlamydia antibody coated particles and Chlamydia antigen coated on the membrane.
