Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Ab Test is a sandwich lateral flow immunochromatographic
assay for the qualitative detection of Feline Immunodeficiency
Virus antibody (FIV Ab) in cat’s blood.
PRINCIPLE OF THE ASSAY
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Ab Test is based on sandwich lateral flow
immunochromatographic assay. The test device has a testing window.
The testing window has an invisible T (test) zone and C (control)
zone. When sample is applied into the sample hole on the device,
the liquid will laterally flow on the surface of the test strip. If
there is enough FIV antibody in the sample, a visible T band will
appear. The C band should always appear after a sample is applied,
indicating a valid result. By this means, the device can accurately
indicate the presence of FIV antibody in the sample.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Positive: The presence of both C band and T band, no matter T band is clear
Negative: Only clear C band appears.
Invalid: No colored band appears in C zone, no matter whether T band
