The neisseria gonorrhoeae antigen test card is a rapid visual
immunoassay for the qualitative detection of neisseria gonorrhoeae
in female endocervical swab and male urethral swab specimens. This
kit is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of neisseria
The neisseria gonorrhoeae antigen test kit is designed to detect N.
Gonorrhoeae through visual interpretation of the color development
in the internal strip. The membrane was immobilized with gonococcal
Antigen-specific polychonal antibody on the test region (T) and
related antibodies on the control region(C).
During testing, the specimen is added to the sample region (S) and
reacts with anti-gonococcus antibodies conjugated to colored
particles and precoated onto the sample pad of the test. Then, the
mixture migrates through the membrane by capillary action and
interacts with reagents on the membrane. If there is sufficient
gonococcus antigens in the specimen, a colored band will form at
the test region (T) 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
N. Gonorrhoeae is one of the most common sexually transmitted
disease which caused by the bacterium nersseria gonorrhoeae
Symptoms of infection with N. gonorrhoeae differ depending on the
site of infection. Note also that 10% of infected males and 80% of
infected females are asymptomatic.
Infection of the genitals can result in a purulent (or pus-like)
discharge from the genitals which may be foul smelling. Symptoms
may include inflammation, redness, swelling, and dysuria N.
gonorrhoeae can also cause conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, proctitis
or urethritis, prostatitis and orchitis.
Infection of the genitals in females with N. gonorrhoeae can result
in pelvic inflammatory disease if left untreated, which can result
in infertility. Infertility is caused by inflammation and scarring
of the fallopian tube. Infertility is a risk to 10 to 20% of the
females infected with N. gonorrhoeae. Thus. It is significant for
early diagnosis and treatment for N.gonorrhoeae
N.gonorrhoeae could be detected by many methods based on difference
technologies such as culture, microscopic examination, DNA
examination and immunoassays. And this kit belongs to immunoassay.
1. Positive Coincidence Rate:100%
2. Negative Coincidence Rate:100%
3. Analytical Sensitive:The Detection value of gonococcal antigens
should be higher than 5x104 in each specimen.
4. Analytical Specificity: Compared with difference kinds infection
factors and the test result are negative.
5. Intra Batch Discrepancy: The test results are same in one batch
6. Inter Batch Discrepancy: The test results are same in difference
