—— Mr John Smith England

My oldest daughter actually has Lyme disease. She spent almost 1 year in a wheelchair because of Lyme. She is doing very well now. I used 2 of the samples. 1 to test my Lyme diagnosed daughter and 1 to test my daughter who does not have Lyme. Your tests worked well. My daughter with Lyme tested positive and the one who does not tested negative.

CE Certificated Lateral Flow Diagnostics AllTest Legionella Pneumophila Rapid Test Dipstick ( Urine ) ILEG-101

 

 

Application:

 

The Legionella pneumophila antigen Test Dipstick is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection o f Legionella pneumophila LPS in urine samples, the membrane is pre-coated with a anti-Legionella antibodies on the test line region of the test. During testing, the specimen reacts with the particle coated with anti-Legionella antibodies. The mixture migrates upward on the membrane by capillary action to react with anti-Legionella antibodies on the membrane and generate a colored line. The presence of this colored line in the test 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.

 

Description:

 

Legionellosis is a serious pneumonia caused by bacteria of the genus Legionella assigned to the family Legionellaceae. This family now includes 48 species and over 60 serogroups. Approximately 20 species are implicated in human disease. The overwhelming majority of Legionella infections are caused by Legionella pneumophila. Legionnaires' disease is the major clinical manifestation of Legionella infection although extra-pulmonary infection and non-pneumonic disease like Pontiac fever occur. The name Legionella pneumophila was derived from the dramatic outbreak at the 1976 American Legion Convention in Philadelphia.

Legionella pneumophila is responsible for approximately 90% of infections, and of these, over 80% are due to a single serogroup, serogroup 1. Legionella bacteria are small faintly staining Gram-negative rods with polar flagella. Legionella bacteria have a widespread distribution in both natural and manmade aquatic habitats. They are readily found in fresh water, cooling towers and potable water systems. The organisms can survive in a wide range of conditions, and temperature is a critical determinant for Legionella proliferation. Nosocomial infection is particularly associated with colonization of hospital hot water system by Legionella.

The incubation period of Legionnaires' disease after being exposed to the bacteria is from two to ten days. Most patients who are admitted to the hospital develop high fever often higher than 39.5°C (103°F). Cough can be the first sign of a lung infection. Other common symptoms include headaches, muscle aches, chest pain, and shortness of breath. Gastrointestinal symptoms are common.

Legionnaires' disease (LD) is not contagious. The disease is transmitted by aerosol, and there is no evidence for direct person-to-person transmission. Person at risk are those whose immune system is compromised, including transplant recipients, the elderly, cigarette smokers, or those showing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or chronic renal disease.

Diagnosis of legionellosis can be difficult because signs and symptoms are nonspecific and do not distinguish L. pneumophila infections from other common causes of pneumonia. L. pneumophila infections are considered to be fairly common but they are probably underdiagnosed and under-reported. The underdiagnosis of legionellosis can in part be attributed to the need for rapid, specific and sensitive diagnostic testing methods.

The Legionella pneumophila Rapid Test Dipstick (Urine) detects soluble antigen from L .pneumophila serogroup 1 in urine.

 

 

How to use?

 

Allow kit components, in unopened packaging, and specimens to reach room temperature (15-30°C) before performing a test.

  • Open the pouch and remove the device. Once opened, run the test immediately.
  • Swirl urine gently to mix before testing.
  • With arrows towards pointing toward urine specimen, immerse the test Dipstick vertically in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 seconds. Do not pass the maximum line (MAX) on the test Dipstick when immersing the Dipstick. See illustration below.
  • Place the Dipstick on a non-absorbent flat surface, start the timer and wait for the color line (s) to appear. The result should be read at 15 minutes, do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.CE Certificated Lateral Flow Diagnostics AllTest Legionella Pneumophila Rapid Test Dipstick ( Urine ) ILEG-101

 

 

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

 

(Please refer to the illustration above)

 

POSITIVE:* Two lines appear. One colored line should be in the control line region (C) and another apparent colored line should be in the test line region (T). A positive result indicates that Legionella pneumophila was detected in the specimen.

*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of Legionella pneumophila present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region (T) should be considered positive.

 

NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appears in the test line region (T). A negative result indicates that Legionella pneumophila antigen is not present in the specimen, or is present below the detectable level of the test.

 

INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
