The Dengue NS1 Antigen Rapid Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of dengue virus NS1 antigen in whole Blood, serum or plasma to aid in the diagnosis of Dengue viral infection.
Dengue viruses, transmitted by the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, are widely distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical areas of the world.The Dengue NS1 Antigen Rapid Test is a qualitative membrane strip based immunoassay for the detection of dengue virus NS1 antigen in Whole Blood /Serum / Plasma. In this test procedure, anti-Dengue NS1 antibody is immobilized in the test line region of the device. After a Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma specimen is placed in the specimen well, it reacts with anti-Dengue NS1 antibody coated particles that have been applied to the specimen pad. If the specimen contains dengue virus NS1 antigen, a colored line will appear in the test line region indicating a positive result.
Add two drops of serum or plasma into the sample window using provided disposable dropper
For Venipuncture Whole Blood specimens: Add 2 drops of whole blood to the specimen well (S), then add 1 drop of buffer
For Fingerstick Whole Blood: Allow 2 hanging drops of fingerstick whole blood specimen to fall into the center of the specimen well (S), then add 1 drop of buffer
Wait for the colored band(s) to appear. The result should be read at 20 minutes.
Positive: Two lines appear. One coloured line should be in the control line region (C) and another apparent coloured line should be in the test line region (T).
Negative: One coloured line appears in the control line region(C). No line appears in the test line region (T).
Invalid: No visible band at all or test band without control band.
