HEV IgM Test Cassette is a rapid test based on the principle of immunoassay combined with conjugated colloid gold technology. The HEV test is a diagnostic device for qualitative detection of anti-HEV IgM in human serum (or plasma) specimen.
In acute infection period, anti-HEV IgM is present of high level in the patient鈥檚 sera. The IgM antibody titer is decreased significantly and even disappeared in convalescence period, instead IgG is present. Since cases of hepatitis E are not clinically distinguishable from other types of acute viral hepatitis, a correct diagnosis can be made by blood tests which detect the specific anti-viral antibodies.

 

Features

  • Qualitative results聽in 10-15 minutes
  • High sensitivity and high specificity
  • Easy to use and read
  • No need additional equipment
  • Room temperature storage

ONE STEP CASSETTE STYLE HEV IgM TEST (COLLOID GOLD)

 

INTRODUCTION

The one step cassette style HEV IgM test is a rapid test based on the principle of immunoassay combined with conjugated colloid gold technology. The HEV test is a diagnostic device for qualitative detection of anti-HEV IgM in human serum (or plasma) specimen.

 

SUMMARY

In acute infection period, anti-HEV IgM is present of high level in the patient鈥檚 sera. The IgM antibody titer is decreased significantly and even disappeared in convalescence period, instead IgG is present. Since cases of hepatitis E are not clinically distinguishable from other types of acute viral hepatitis, a correct diagnosis can be made by blood tests which detect the specific anti-viral antibodies.

 

SPECIMEN COLLECTION

For serum锛坥r plasma锛, collect blood into a container without anticoagulant. If the specimen cannot be tested on the day of collection, store the serum (or plasma) specimen in a refrigerator or freezer. Bring the specimens to room temperature before testing.

 

TEST PROCEDURE

  1. Dilute the serum (or plasma) specimen 1000 times with 0.85% NaCl solution.
  2. Open a pouch containing a cassette, remove the test kit from the pouch and place it horizontally on the desk.
  3. Pipette 2 or 3 drops of diluted specimen into the sample well of the cassette.
  4. Read results within 10-15 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-HEV IgM in the serum.

Positive: Two pink bands appear on test region of the Cassette. This indicates that the specimen contains detectable amount of anti-HEV IgM.

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.

 

PRECAUTION:

  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. Use the test kit as soon as possible but within 1 hour after removal from pouch specially if the room temperature is more than 30鈩 and in high humidity environment.
  4. Old Serum can not be used. If the serum is thick, it can be used only after being separated.

LIMITATIONS

  1. The test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.
  2. The test is qualitative filter detection锛宨t 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掳C) in the sealed pouch to the date of expiration. The test kit should be kept away from direct sunlight, moisture and heat.
