A rapid test for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Hepatitis A virus in serum or plasma. For professional in vitro diagnostic use only
The HAV IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test Cassette is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Hepatitis A virus (HAV) in serum or plasma specimen.
HAV is a positive RNA virus, a unique member of picornavirdae. Its transmission depends primarily on serial transmission from person to person by the fecal-oral route. Although hepatitis A is not ordinarily a sexually transmitted disease, the infection rate is high among male homosexuals, as result of oral-anal contact.
The HAV IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test Cassette is to be used to detect IgG and IgM antibodies to HAV in less than 20 minutes by untrained or minimally skilled personnel, without cumbersome laboratory equipment.
How to use?
Sample dilution: Use micropipette to add 50 ul specimen into the sample dilution tube. Screw the lid tightly and turn it upside down mildly for 10 seconds to ensure the solution mixed well. Use the diluted sample as specimen for testing. See instruction below.
1. Remove the test cassette from sealed pouch and used it within one hour. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed immediately after opening foil pouch.
2. Absorb the sample from sample dilution bottle with 5ul droppers, then transfer 1 drop of the dilution sample (5 ul) to the sample port (S) which part have been marked respectively. Or using micropipette add 5ul dilution sample into the sample
port (S) which part have been marked.
3. Add 2 drops of buffer (approx. 80 ul) into the buffer well (B) of the test cassette, start the time.
4. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read the result at 20 minutes, do not interpret the result after 30 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Please refer to the illustration above)
POSITIVE:* Two distinct colored lines appear. One colored line should be in the control region (C) and another colored line should be in the test region (T).
*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of HAV IgG or HAV IgM present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test region (T) should be considered positive.
NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control region (C). No apparent colored line appears in the test region (T).
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 cassette. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
