One Step Cassette Style ANTI-HIV1+2 Rapid Screen Test
One Step ANTI-HIV1+2 Test is a rapid direct binding screening test for the presence of antibodies to HIV 1 and HIV 2. The test is based on the principle of double antigen sandwichimmunoassay for the qualitative detection of Anti-HIV in human serum.Purified recombin antigens are employed to identify Anti-HIV specifically. This one step test is very sensitive and only takes about 15 minutes. Test results are read visually without any instrumentation.
For serum, collect blood into a container without anticoagulant. If the specimen cannot be tested on the day of collection, store the serum specimen in a refrigerator or freezer. Bring the specimens to room temperature before testing.Do not freeze and thaw the specimen repeatedly.
1. Open a pouch containing a cassette, lay the cassette.
2. Using the plastic pipettor provided, draw two or three drops of sample into the sample well of the cassette.
3.Read results within 15 minutes. Do not read results after 20 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Negative: Only one pink band appears on test region of the Cassette. This indicates that there is no detectable anti-HIV in the serum.
Positive: Two pink bands appear on test region of the Cassette. This indicates that the specimen contains detectable amount of anti-HIV.
Invalid: If without colored band appears on test region, this is an indication of a possible error in performing the test. The test should be repeated using a new device.
1,Must use fresh specimen and avoid repetitive freezing, the result will be invalid
2,Use it before expiry date.
3,The package of kit should not be opened until it reaches the room temperature if it taken out from the refrigerator.
4,Old Serum can not be used. If the serum is thick, it can be used only after being separated.
1,The test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.
2,The test is qualitative filter detection,it can not be used as the final test for blood donor
STORAGE AND STABILITY
The test kit can be stored at room temperature (2 to 30°C) in the sealed pouch to the date of expiration.The test kit should be kept away from direct sunlight, moisture and heat.
