Gonorrhea Rapid Test Uncut Sheet
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.
MATERIALS REQUIRED BUT NOT PROVIDED
STORAGE AND VALIDITY
· The kit should be stored at 2-30°C in a cool and dry place,
protected from light
· The validity is 24months
· Do not freeze.
· Do not use after the expiration date indicated on the package.
The quality of specimen obtained is extreme important. Detection of
Gonococci requires a rigorous and thorough collection technique
which provides active cellular rather than just tissues. For female
endocervical specimens, the specimens are invalid if the swab
inserted into endocervical cannal is less than 1/2 deep or
contamination with exocervical or vaginal cells. For male urethral
specimens, the specimens are invalid if the patient urinated within
1 hours or the swab inserted into urethra less than 2 cm deep.
