The Test Kit
This product is used for the detection of COVID-19 antigens in clinical samples (nasal swabs). The current COVID-19 virus belongs to a bigger virus family that typically contains singlestranded RNA. The virus causes nausea, MERS and SARS. The most important protein of this virus is the N-protein, that belongs to the nucleocapsid. It respectivly belongs to the β-coronaviruses and thus making it a good target for the detection of the virus.
The Principle of the Test Kit
This Rapid Test Kit detects the present N-protein via antibody-antigen interactions and immunoanalysis method. The test contains colloidal gold labeled COVID-19 N-protein monoclonal antibody’s. This means that the test reacts when N-protein antigens are present in the sample material. If this is the case, the chromatography stripes change color due to the reaction. Diagnosis can be determined by reading the stripes after 15-20 minutes.
