Nasopharyngeal specimen swab collection set included!
Immunochromatography rapid test
Lateral flow immunochromatographic assay that adopted dual color system.
For the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigen from nasopharyngeal swab specimen.
The test contains colloid gold conjugate pad and a membrane strip pre-coated with antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 antigen on the test lines (T).
A visible black band (antibody-antigen-antibody gold conjugate complex) appears on the test lines (T) If SARS-CoV-2 antigen is present in the specimen.
The control line (C) shows that test is performed correctly.
Evaluated with panel specimen (n = 75) by PCR
Sensitivity: 90,2 %
Specificity: 100 %

2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, 2019-nCoV) is a single-stranded RNA coronavirus. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by the 2019-nCoV. 2019-nCoV belongs to the Betacoronavirus Genus, which also includes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV, 2003) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV, 2012). Coronaviruses, 2019-nCoV consist of a four viral proteins named spike (S), envelope (E), membrane (M), and nucleocapsid (N).
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
