COVID-19 Antibody Rapid Detection Kit

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) Rapid Test Device utilizes lateral flow technology that is used for the qualitative, differential detection of both anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG antibodies. This test is intended to screen patients, symptomatic or asymptomatic, for COVID-19. IgM antibodies will appear within blood as soon as 3-5 days for symptomatic patients and 7 days for asymptomatic patients. IgG antibodies appear in blood within 2 weeks after infection. Over time blood concentrations of both IgM and IgG decrease, where IgM will become undetectable, but IgG will remain elevated.Results obtained should not be the sole determinant for clinical decision.Combining RNA and Antibody tests can significantly raise the sensitivity for detecting COVID-19 in infected individuals.

Coronaviruses are enveloped RNA viruses that are distributed broadly among humans, other mammals and birds that cause respiratory, enteric, hepatic and neurologic diseases. Four viruses - 229E, OC43, NL63 and HKU1 are prevalent and typically cause common cold symptoms in immunocompromised individuals. Three other strains SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) are can be transmitted from between non-human vertebrates to humans.

This test has been validated but independent review by the FDA is not yet complete.

Instructions for Use:

1. Remove the test cassette from the sealed foil pouch and use it as soon as possible.

2. Lay device on flat surface and add specimen (see specific instructions for each specimen type below):

a. For Serum or Plasma Specimen: with the 5 μL plastic dropper provided, draw serum/plasma specimen to exceed the specimen line, as shown in the diagram below. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer drawn serum/plasma specimen into the sample well (S). Immediately add 2 drops (about 80 μL) of sample buffer to the buffer well (B) ensuring that buffer vial tip does not touch the sample. Avoid air bubbles.

b. For Whole Blood Specimen: Hold the 5 μL plastic dropper vertically and transfer 1 drop of whole blood (about 10 μL) to the sample well (S) of the test device. Immediately add 2 drops (about 80 μL) of sample buffer to the buffer well (B) ensuring that buffer vial tip does not touch the sample. Avoid air bubbles.

3. Wait for the control line (C) to change from blue to a red color. If, after 2 minutes, the sample has not moved across the test window or if blood is still present in the sample well (S), add 1 additional drop of sample buffer to the buffer well (B).

4. The results should be read in 10 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 15 minutes.
