One-Step Adenovirus Ag Rapid Test
Formats:Uncut Sheets , Bulk Package, 30Tests/Box ,OEM
The Adenovirus Rapid Test Device (Feces) is a rapid visual
immunoassay for the qualitative presumptive detection of adenovirus
in human fecal specimens. This kit is intended to be used as an aid
in the diagnosis of adenovirus infection.
Acute diarrheal disease in young children is a major cause of
morbidity worldwide and is a leading cause of mortality in
developing countries. Research has shown that enteric adenoviruses,
primarily Ad40 and Ad41, are a leading cause of diarrhea in many of
these children, second only to the rotaviruses. These viral
pathogens have been isolated throughout the world, and can cause
diarrhea in children year round. Infections are most frequently
seen in children less than two years of age, but have been found in
patients of all ages. Further studies indicate that adenoviruses
are associated with 4-15% of all hospitalized cases of viral
Rapid and accurate diagnosis of gastroenteritis due to adenovirus
is helpful in establishing the etiology of gastroenteritis and
related patient management. Other diagnostic techniques such as
electron microscopy (EM) and nucleic acid hybridization are
expensive and labor-intensive. With the self-limiting nature of
adenovirus infection, such expensive and labor-intensive tests may
not be necessary.
The Adenovirus Rapid Test Device (Feces) has been designed to
detect adenovirus through visual interpretation of color
development in the internal strip. The membrane was immobilized
with anti-adenovirus on the test region. During the test, the
specimen is allowed to react with colored anti-adnovirus 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 adenovirus in specimens, a colored band will form at the T
region of the membrane. Presence of 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 indicates that proper volume of specimen
has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
Individually packed test devices
Each device contains a strip with colored conjugates and reactive
reagents pre-spreaded at the corresponding regions.
Specimens collection cards
For specimens collection use.
Specimens dilution tube with buffer
Each contains 2 ml of 0.1 M Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) and
0.02% sodium azide.
For watery specimens collection use.
For operation instruction.
MATERIALS REQUIRED BUT NOT PROVIDED
For timing use.
For treatment of special specimens.
1.For professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
2.Do not use after expiration date indicated on the package. Do not
use the test if its foil pouch is damaged. Do not reuse tests.
3.This kit contains products of animal origin. Certified knowledge
of the origin and/or sanitary state of the animals does not totally
guarantee the absence of transmissible pathogenic agents. It is
therefore, recommended that these products be treated as
potentially infectious, and handled observing the usual safety
precautions (do not ingest or inhale).
4.Avoid cross-contamination of specimens by using a new specimen
collection container for each specimen obtained.
5.Read the entire procedure carefully prior to performing any
6.Do not eat, drink or smoke in the area where the specimens and
kits are handled. Handle all specimens as if they contain
infectious agents. Observe established precautions against
microbiological hazards throughout the procedure and follow the
standard procedures for proper disposal of specimens. Wear
protective clothing such as laboratory coats, disposable gloves and
eye protection when specimens are assayed.
7.Buffered Saline contains sodium azide which may react with lead
or copper plumbing to form potentially explosive metal azides. When
disposing of buffered saline or extracted samples, always flush
with copious quantities of water to prevent azide build up.
8.Do not interchange or mix reagents from different lots.
9.Humidity and temperature can adversely affect results.
10.The used testing materials should be discarded in accordance
with local, state and/or federal regulations.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
1.The kit should be stored at 2-30°C until the expiry date printed
on the sealed pouch.
2.The test must remain in the sealed pouch until use.
3.Do not freeze.
4.Cares should be taken to protect components in this kit from
contamination. Do not use if there is evidence of microbial
contamination or precipitation. Biological contamination of
dispensing equipments, containers or reagents can lead to false
