TheSyphilis Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative, presumptive detection of IgM and IgG antibodies to Treponema Pallidum (TP) in human Whole Blood, serum or plasma specimens. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of syphilis.
Principle of Syphilis Rapid Test Device
TheSyphilis Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) detects IgM and IgG antibodies to Treponema Pallidum (TP) through visual interpretation of color development on the internal strip. Specific recombinant TP antigens are immobilized on the test region of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with recombinant TP-specific antigen 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 are sufficient antibodies to Treponema Pallidum (TP) 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, indicatingthat the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
