BIPL HCV Ab Rapid Test is a double antigen lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of anti-hepatitis C virus antibodies (IgG, IgM, IgA) in human serum, plasma. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with HCV.
BIPL HCV Ab Rapid Test is a double antigen lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay. The test cassette consists of:
1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing recombinant HCV fusion antigen (core, NS3,NS4 and NS5) conjugated with colloidal gold (HCV Ag conjugates) and a control antibody conjugated with colloidal gold,
2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing a test line (T line) and a control line (C line). The T line is pre coated with recombinant HCV fusion antigen (core, NS3, NS4 and NS5), and C line is pre coated with a control line antibody.
