COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies (IgG and IgM) to COVID-19 virus in whole blood, serum, or plasma.

Product Details

  The COVID-19 IgG/IgM strip is for detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID-19 virus. Anti-human IgG and anti-ligand are separately coated in the test line region 1 and region 2. During testing, the specimen reacts with COVID-19 antigen-coated particles in the test strip. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with the anti-human IgG and the ligand anti-human IgM. COVID-19 IgG or IgM antibodies, if present in the specimen, reacts with the anti-human IgG in region 1 or the ligand anti-human IgM. The complex is captured and forming a colored line in the Test line region 1 or 2. 


DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  Allow the test device, specimen, buffer, and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.

  1. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening. Remove the test device from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.

  2. Place the test device on a clean and level surface.

For Serum or Plasma Specimens:

Hold the dropper vertically, draw the specimen up to the Fill Line (approximately 10 μL), and transfer the specimen to the specimen well (S) of the test device, then add 3 drops of buffer (approximately 90 mL) and start the timer. See illustration below. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well (S).

For Whole Blood (Venipuncture/Fingerstick) Specimens:

To use a dropper: Hold the dropper vertically, draw the specimen 0.5-1 cm above the Fill Line,  and transfer 1 drop of whole blood (approximately 20 µL) to the specimen well (S) of the test device, then add 3 drops of buffer (approximately 90 uL) and start the timer. See illustration below.

To use a micropipette: Pipet and dispense 20 µL of whole blood to the specimen well (S) of the test device, then add 3 drops of buffer (approximately 90 µL) and start the timer. See illustration below.

3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read results at 10 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 15 minutes.
