In 15 minutes, you can now test for a positive or negative result for the Covid-19 virus in the least obtrusive way possible with a 97% accuracy rate. This is not a PCR test nor an Antibody test, it tells you if there is presence of the Sars Cov 2 virus in the sample. It uses a simple nasal swab which takes 5 seconds to do.
The current test card is based on the specific antibody-antigen reaction and immune-analysis technology.
The test card contains colloidal gold labelled SARS-CoV-2 N protein monoclonal antibody which is pre-coated on the combination pad, matched SARS-CoV-2 N protein monoclonal antibody immobilized on the Test area, corresponding antibody in the quality control area..
During testing, the N protein in the sample combines with the colloidal gold labelled SARS-CoV-2 N protein monoclonal antibody which is pre-coated on the combination pad. The conjugates migrate upward under capillary effect, and subsequently captured by the N protein monoclonal antibody immobilized in the Test area. The higher the contents of N protein in the sample, the more the conjugates captures and the darker the colour in the test area is. If there is no virus in the sample or the virus content is lower than the detection limit, then there is no colour demonstrated in the test area. Regardless of the presence or absence of the virus in the sample, a purple stripe will appear in the quality control area. The purple stripe in the quality control area is a criterion for the judgment of whether or not there is enough sample and whether or not the chromatography procedure is normal.
