N.Gonorrhea Antigen Rapid Test Card
Cat. No.: RH215I
The neisseria gonorrhoeae antigen test card is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative detection of neisseria gonorrhoeae in female endocervical swab and male urethral swab specimens. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of neisseria gonorrhoeae infection.
The neisseria gonorrhoeae antigen test kit is designed to detect N. Gonorrhoeae through visual interpretation of the color development in the internal strip. The membrane was immobilized with gonococcal Antigen-specific polychonal antibody on the test region (T) and related antibodies on the control region(C).
During testing, the specimen is added to the sample region (S) and reacts with anti-gonococcus antibodies conjugated to colored particles and precoated onto the sample pad of the test. Then, the mixture migrates through the membrane by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane. If there is sufficient gonococcus antigens in the specimen, a colored band will form at the test region (T) of the membrane. The presence of this colored band indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
N. Gonorrhoeae is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease which caused by the bacterium nersseria gonorrhoeae
Symptoms of infection with N. gonorrhoeae differ depending on the site of infection. Note also that 10% of infected males and 80% of infected females are asymptomatic.
Infection of the genitals can result in a purulent (or pus-like) discharge from the genitals which may be foul smelling. Symptoms may include inflammation, redness, swelling, and dysuria N. gonorrhoeae can also cause conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, proctitis or urethritis, prostatitis and orchitis.
Infection of the genitals in females with N. gonorrhoeae can result in pelvic inflammatory disease if left untreated, which can result in infertility. Infertility is caused by inflammation and scarring of the fallopian tube. Infertility is a risk to 10 to 20% of the females infected with N. gonorrhoeae. Thus. It is significant for early diagnosis and treatment for N.gonorrhoeae
N.gonorrhoeae could be detected by many methods based on difference technologies such as culture, microscopic examination, DNA examination and immunoassays. And this kit belongs to immunoassay.

STORAGE AND VALIDITY
The quality of specimen obtained is extreme important. Detection of Gonococci requires a rigorous and thorough collection technique which provides active cellular rather than just tissues. For female endocervical specimens, the specimens are invalid if the swab inserted into endocervical cannal is less than 1/2 deep or contamination with exocervical or vaginal cells. For male urethral specimens, the specimens are invalid if the patient urinated within 1 hours or the swab inserted into urethra less than 2 cm deep.
For female endocervical specimens:
For male urethral specimens:
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
POSITIVE RESULT: Two colored bands appear on the membrane. One band appears in the control region (C) and another band appears in the test region (T). Positive result indicates the specimen with gonococcal antigens.
NEGATIVE RESULT: Only one colored band appears in the control region (C). No apparent colored band appears in the test region (T).Negative result indicates the specimen without testing concentration gonococcal antigens
INVALID RESULT: Control band fails to appear. Results from any test which has not produced a control band at the specified reading time must be discarded. Please review the procedure and repeat with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
The intensity of the color in test region (T) may vary depending on the concentration of aimed substances present in the specimen. But in the valid time, even the color band is very week, the result shall be regarded as positive.
