A rapid test for the diagnosis of inflammatory condition by detecting CRP qualitatively in whole blood, serum or plasma CE certified
The CrP Rapid Test Dipstick (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human CrP in whole blood, serum or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of inflammatory condition. The cutoff of the test is 10 μg/ml.
C-reactive Protein (CrP) in patient’s sera has been found in association with acute infections, necrotic conditions and a variety of inflammatory disorders. There is a strong correlation between serum levels of CrP and the onset of the inflammatory process. Monitoring the levels of CrP in patient’s sera indicates the effectiveness of treatment and the assessment of patient recovery. It is used in particular to differentiate bacterial infections from virus infections.
How to use?
Bring tests, specimens, buffer, and/or controls to room temperature (15-30°C) before use.
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).
*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of CrP antigen 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).
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.
