TheRotavirus Rapid Test Device (Feces) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative presumptive detection of rotavirus in human fecal specimens. This kit is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection.
Principle of Rotavirus Test kit
The Rotavirus Rapid Test Device (Feces) has been designed to detect rotavirus through visual interpretation of color development in the internal strip. The membrane was immobilized with anti-rotavirus antibodies on the test region. During the test, the specimen is allowed to react with colored anti-rotavirus antibodies colloidal gold conjugates, which were precoated on the sample pad of the test. The mixture then moves on the membrane by a capillary action, and interact with reagents on the membrane. If there were enough rotavirus in specimens, a colored band will form at the test region of the membrane. Presence of this colored band indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. Appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control. This indicatesthat proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
