Product Number: RAPG-HAV-001

Pack size

20 tests

Product Description

The Biopanda HAV Rapid Test detects IgM antibodies to Hepatitis A virus (HAV) in human serum or plasma samples.

Test Attributes

  • Serum or plasma samples may be used for testing
  • Results available in only 20 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for assisting in the diagnosis of HAV infections

Test Procedure

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing.
  2. Add 50 μl of the specimen into a sample dilution bottle. Firmly screw the cap on and invert it gently several times to ensure sufficient mixing of reagents.
  3. Open the foil wrapped pouch and remove the cassette. Place the cassette on a flat, clean surface. Use test immediately after opening.
  4. Using a dropper provided transfer 1 drop to the sample port (S) marked on the cassette.
  5. Add 2 drops of buffer (approx. 80 μl) to the dilution well (B).
  6. Read results after 20 minutes when coloured lines have appeared in the test region.
  7. Results read after 30 minutes are considered invalid. Dispose of the cassette safely after testing.
HAV Rapid Test

Principle

The test is based on a proprietary technology that combines the principles of immuno-chromatography and fluid dynamics. The test has recombinant mouse anti-human IgM immobilized on the membrane within the test zone. During testing the serum or plasma added on the sample port (S) reacts with mouse anti-human IgM on the membrane first. The buffer runs laterally from the buffer well (B). HAV antigen present in the sample reacts to particles coated with mouse anti-HAV migrating through the test zone, the HAV antigens are captured by the HAV antibody in the first step. A positive result is indicated when the test zone forms a coloured line. No coloured line in the test zone indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
