Dengue NS1 Rapid Medical Home Rapid Urine Drug Abuse Test Kit

Application:

The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of NS1 antigen of Dengue virus in human whole blood, serum, or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of Dengue infections.

Description

Dengue is a flavivirus, transmitted by Aedesaegypti and Aedesalbopictus mosquitoes. It is widely distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical areas of the world, and causes up to 100 million infections annually. 2 Classic Dengue infection is characterized by a sudden onset of fever, intense headache, myalgia, arthralgia and rash. NS1 is one of 7 Dengue Virus non-structural proteins which are thought to be involved in viral replication. NS1 exists as a monomer in its immature form but is rapidly processed in the endoplasmic reticulum to form a stable dimer. A small amount of NS1 remains associated with intracellular organelles where it is thought to be involved in viral replication. The rest of NS1 is found either associated with the plasma membrane or secreted as a soluble hexadimer. NS1 is essential for viral viability but its precise biological function is unknown. Antibodies raised in response to NS1 in viral infection can cross react with cell surface antigens on epithelial cells and platelets and this has been implicated in the development of Dengue Hemorrhagic fever. The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid test that utilizes a combination of Dengue antibody coated colored particles for the detection of Dengue NS1 antigen in human whole blood, serum, or plasma.

How to use?

Allow the test cassette, specimen, buffer and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
1. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch and use it within 1 hour.
2. Place the cassette on a clean and level surface.
For Serum or Plasma specimen:
· Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of serum or plasma (approximately 75μL) to the specimen well, and start the timer. See illustration below.
For Venipuncture Whole Blood specimen:
· Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of whole blood (approximately 75μL) to the specimen well, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40μL), and start the timer. See illustration below.
For Fingerstick Whole Blood specimen:
· To use a capillary tube: Fill the capillary tube and transfer approximately 75μL of fingerstick whole blood specimen to the specimen well of test cassette, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40μL) and start the timer. See illustration below.3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read result at 10 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.
Note: It is suggested not to use the buffer beyond 30 days after opening the vial.

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

(Please refer to the illustration above)

POSITIVE: * Two distinct colored lines appear. One colored line should be in the control region (C) and another colored line should be in the test region (T).

*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of Dengue NS1 antigen present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test region should be considered positive.

NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control region (C). No apparent red or pink line appears in the test region (T).

INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test cassette. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
