Description

The HSV 1/2 IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to HSV 1/2 in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens. In this test, HSV 1/2 Antigen is coated in the test line regions of the test. During testing, the whole blood, serum or plasma specimen reacts with mouse anti-human IgG or goat anti-human IgM coated particles in the test strip. The mixture then migrates forward on the membrane by capillary action and reacts with the HSV 1/2 Antigen on the membrane in the test line region respectively. The presence of a colored line in the test line region indicates a positive result for HSV 1/2 infection, while its absence indicates a negative result for that infection.

To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the respective control line regions of all the two strips indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.

Materials provided

  • Test Cassettes
  • Buffer
  • Droppers
  • Package Insert

Directions for use

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

  1. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch and use it within one hour. The best results will be obtained if the assay is performed as soon as possible.
  2. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically; draw the specimen about 1cm above the upper end of the nozzle as shown in the illustration below. Transfer 1 full drop (approx. 20μL) of the specimen to each sample well, then add 2 drops of buffer (approximately 80μL) to each sample well and start the timer. See the illustration below.
  3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. The result should be read at 15 minutes. Do not interpret results after 20 minutes.

Note: It is suggested not to use the buffer, beyond 30 days after opening the vial.

Interpretation of results

POSITIVE: Two colored lines appear. One colored line should always appear in the control line region (C) and another line should be in the test line region.

*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line regions may vary depending on the concentration of HSV 1/2 antibodies present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region should be considered positive.

NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appears in the test line regions.

INVALID: The control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
