SIMPLE COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test Kit
25 Kits per box
Our Simple Rapid COVID-19 AntiGen Kit is not only accurate but simple to use for detection of SARS-COV-2 virus in the human body. The Test is performed using a Nasal Swab and it has a proven sensitivity of 96.6% in clinical studies performed at ICMR approved laboratories.
The Simple COVID-19 Ag Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay. The test cassette consists of: 1) a colored conjugate pad containing anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody conjugated with colloidal gold (antibody conjugates) and 2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing a test line (T line) and a control line (C line). The test line precoated with antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 and the C line is pre-coated with a control line antibody.
The specimen is collected with a swab and the SARS-CoV-2 antigen is extracted from the swab with extraction buffer. The antigen extracts contact the test strip and then migrate by capillary action across the test strip. SARS-CoV-2 antigen, if present in the extract, will bind to the antibody conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured on the membrane by the pre-coated anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody, forming a colored T line, indicating a COVID-19 positive test result.
All reagents are ready to use as supplied. Store unused test devices unopened at 2-30°C. If stored at 2-8°C, ensure that the test device is brought to room temperature (15-30°C) before opening. The test device is stable through the expiration date printed on the pouch. Do not freeze or expose the kit to temperatures above 30°C.
The Simple COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test is a lateral flow immunoassay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antigens in nasal and nasopharyngeal (NP) swab specimens from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first five days of the onset of symptoms. It is intended for the identification of infection with SARS-CoV-2, in the human body.
