Fujibio Hepatitis C Rapid Test Kit is an indirect lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of lgG and lgM anti-Hepatitis C virus (HCV) in human serum, plasma or whole blood. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with HCV. Any reactive specimen with the HCV Ab Combo Rapid Test must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s) and clinical findings.
Fujibio Hepatitis C Rapid Test Kit is indirect lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay. The test cassette contains of: 1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing proprietary recombinant protein A conjugated with colloidal gold (Protein A conjugates),2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing a test band(C band). The T band is pre-coated with recombinant HCV antigens, and the C band is pre-coated with anti-protein A antibodies.
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. The IgM or IgG antibody to HCV if present in the specimen will bind to the HCV conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured on the membrane by the pre-coated non-conjugated HCV antigens, forming a burgundy colored T band, indicating a HCV Ab positive test results.
Absence of the T band suggests a negative result. The test contains an internal control (C band) which should be exhibit a burgundy colored band of the immunocomplex of anti-protein A IgG/protein A-gold conjugate regardless of color development on the T band. Otherwise, the test result is invalid and the specimen must be retested with another device.
