The Anti-HAV-IgM Rapid Test Device (Serum/Plasma) is an in vitro diagnostic kit for the qualitative, presumptive detection of specific anti-HAV-IgM in human serum or plasma specimens. This kit is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of HAV infection.
Principle of HAV Rapid Test Device
The Anti-HAV-IgM Rapid Test Device (Serum/Plasma) detects anti-HAV-IgM through visual interpretation of color development on the internal strip. Mouse anti-human IgM are immobilized on the test region of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with mouse anti-human IgM 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 enough anti-HAV-IgM 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.
