The H.pylori Antibody Rapid Test (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies to H.pylori in whole blood, serum, or plasma to aid in the diagnosis of H.pylori infection.
H.pylori Antibody Rapid Test
(1)Helicobacter pylori is associated with a variety of gastrointestinal diseases included non-ulcer dyspepsia, duodenal and gastric ulcer and active, chronic gastritis.The prevalence of H.pylori infection could exceed 90% in patients with signs and symptoms of gastrointestinal diseases.Recent studies indicate an association of H.pylori infection with stomach cancer.
(2)Disposable Specimen Droppers
3.Directions for Use
Allow test strip, specimen, buffer and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
(1)Remove the test strip from the foil pouch and use it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed within one hour.
(2)Place the test strip on a clean and level surface.
(3)For Serum or Plasma Specimens: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 1 drop of serum or plasma(approximately 30 μL) to the sample pad of the test strip, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 30 μL) and start.
(4)For Venipuncture Whole Blood Specimens: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 2 drops of venipuncture whole blood (approximately 50μL) to the sample pad of the test strip, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 30 μL)and start the timer. See illustration below.
(5)For Fingerstick Whole Blood Specimens: Allow 2 hanging drops of fingerstick whole blood (approximately 50 μ L) to fall into the center of the sample pad on the test strip, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 30 μL) and start the timer. See illustration below.
(6)Wait for the red line(s) to appear. The result should be read in 15 minutes.
(7)Note:Low levels of H.plori antibodies might result in a faint line appearing in the test region(T) after an extended period of time; therefore ,do not interpret the result after 15 minutes.
