COVID-19 (SARS-Cov-2) Antigen Rapid Test (Saliva)
NOT AVAILABLE IN THE USA
COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.
The Novel Coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2) Antigen Rapid Test Cassette (swab) is an immunochromatographic membrane assay that uses highly sensitive monoclonal antibodies to Novel coroinavirus.
The test device is composed of the following three parts, namely sample pad, reagent pad and reaction membrane. The whole strip is fixed inside a plastic device. The reagent membrane contains the colloidal-gold conjugated with the monoclonal antibodies against Novel coroinavirus; the reaction membrane contains the secondary antibodies for Novel coroinavirus, and the polyclonal antibodies against the mouse globulin, which are pre-immobilized on the membrane.
When the sample is added into the sample window, conjugates dried in the reagent pad are dissolved and migrate along with the sample. If Novel coroinavirus is present in the sample, a complex formed between the anti- Novel coroinavirus conjugate and the virus will be caught by the specific anti- Novel coroinavirus monoclonal coated on the T region.
Whether the sample contains the virus or not, the solution continues to migrate to encounter another reagent (an anti-mouse IgG antibody) that binds the remaining conjugates, thereby producing a red line on the region C.
