The COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test† (Nasopharyngeal Swab) is a qualitative membrane-based immunoassay for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 Antigens in human nasopharyngeal swab specimen.
SARS-CoV-2 antibody is coated in the test line region. During testing, the specimen reacts with SARS-CoV-2 antibody-coated particles in the test. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane by capillary action and reacts with the SARS-CoV-2 antibody in test line region.
If the specimen contains SARS-CoV-2 Antigens, a colored line will appear in test line region as a result of this.
If the specimen does not contain antigens to SARS-CoV-2, no colored line will appear in the test line region, indicating a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
The Influenza A+B Rapid Test† (Nasopharyngeal Swab) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Influenza A and Influenza B antigen in human nasopharyngeal swab specimen. In this test, antibody specific to the Influenza A and Influenza B is separately coated on the test line regions of the test. During testing, the extracted specimen reacts with the antibody to Influenza A and/or Influenza B that are coated onto particles.
The mixture migrates up the membrane to react with the antibody to Influenza A and/or Influenza B on the membrane and generate one or two colored lines in the test regions. The presence of this colored line in either or both of the test regions indicates a positive result.
To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control region if the test has performed properly.
