The Chlamydia Rapid Test Device (Swab/Urine) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative presumptive detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in female cervical swab, male urethral swab and male urine specimens. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of Chlamydia infection.
Principle of Chlamydia Rapid Test Device
TheChlamydia Rapid Test Device (Swab/Urine) detects Chlamydia trachomatis through visual interpretation of color development on the internal strip. Antigen-specific lipopolysaccharide (LPS) monoclonal antibody is immobilized on the test region of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with monoclonal anti-Chlamydia antibodies conjugated to colored particles and precoated onto the sample pad of the test. The mixture then migrates through the membrane by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane. If there is sufficient chlamydia antigen in the specimen, a colored band will form at the test region of the membrane. The presence of this colored band indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
