Scrub Typhus (Tsutsugamushi) IgM & IgG Card test device contains three lines; “C” (Control line), “M” (IgM test line) & “G” (IgG test line). IgM test line is coated with anti-human IgM and IgG test line is coated with anti-human IgG. When a sample is added to the sample well of the device followed by two drops of buffer in the buffer well, IgM and IgG antibodies in the sample reacts with anti-human IgM and anti-human IgG antibodies coated on the membrane respectively.

If the sample contain Scrub Typhus (Tsutsugamushi) antibodies, colloidal gold conjugate containing Scrub Typhus antigens is captured by the bound anti-Tsutsugamushi IgM &/or IgG on respective test bands forming a pale to dark red band at the IgM &/or IgG region of the test device. The intensity of the test bands in the device will vary depending upon the amount of antibodies present in the sample. The appearance of any pink/red colour in a specific test region should be considered as positive for that particular antibody type (IgM or IgG). A red procedural control line should always develop in the test device window to indicate that the test has been performed properly.
