Accurate Giardia Antigen Cassette Rapid Test Kits Based On Sandwich Format
Giardia Antigen Rapid Test Cassette is a lateral flow immunochromatographic assay based on sandwich format. The test cassette has a testing window. During testing, sample is applied into the sample well on the cassette. Giardia antigens, if present in the specimen, react with anti-Giardia antibodies coated colloidal gold particles in the test strip. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with anti-Giardia antibodies on the membrane in the test line region. If the specimen contains Giardia antigen, a colored line will appear in the test line region indicating a positive result. If the specimen does not contain Giardia antigens, a colored line will not 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 proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
How to use?
1. Collect feces/vomit with the swab stick from animal’s anus or on the ground. The amount of specimen swab as follows:
2. Insert the wet swab into the provided assay buffer tube. Agitate it to assure good sample extraction.
3. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 4 drops of extracted sample (approximately 100 μl) to the specimen well (S) of the test cassette, then start the timer. See illustration below.
4. Read the result in 5-10 minutes. Do not interpret results after 15 minutes.
