Principle

Covid 19 Ag Card is an immunoassay based on “Sandwich” principle. The test contains two pre-coated lines, “C” Control line and “T” test line. SARS-CoV-2 specific Antibody is immobilized on nitrocellulose membrane at “T” Line. Colloidal gold is conjugated to another antibody specific for SARS-CoV-2 Antigen. The test sample treated with extraction buffer when added to the device, interacts with the Colloidal gold Conjugate.

If the specimen contains a novel Coronaviruses antigen, it will form a complex with the Colloidal gold-labelled with SARS-CoV-2 antibody. The complex migrates through the nitrocellulose strip by capillary action. When the complex meets the line of corresponding immobilized antibody, the complex is trapped forming a pink purple band which confirms a reactive test result. Absence of a colored band in the test region indicates a non-reactive test result. A red procedural control line should always develop at “C” region to indicate that the test has been performed properly.
