Rotavirus Rapid Test- Rotavirus Antigen Rapid Test | 818-591-3030

ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST


Medical tests conducted on the efficiency of the Rotavirus Rapid Test have shown that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is equally as accurate as the Rotavirus ELISA test available on the market today.  The test results revealed that the Rotavirus Rapid Test was just as sensitive as the direct electron microscopy of the Rotavirus ELISA test.   The Rapid Rotavirus Antigen Test has shown 98% sensitivity and 97% specificity compared to the Rotavirus ELISA test results.  Thus, the studies concluded that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is an accurate and rapid qualitative method for the detection of rotavirus in stools of symptomatic children.

 

Of course, Rotavirus ELISA kits are highly effective due to their reproductibility, easy interpretation, and their allowing simultaneous performance of several tests at one time.  For a number of years, Rotavirus ELISA Kits have been an important technique for the diagnosis of rotavirus infection.  Although particularly suited for testing large numbers of clinical specimens, Rotavirus ELISA tests often required several hours to complete, and their complexity limited their use to larger laboratories.  The ease of performance and time to completion clearly favored the Rotavirus Rapid Test.  The studies concluded that the Rotavirus Rapid test is particularly suited not only for major laboratories but also for physicians’ offices, clinics, and field work in rural or tropical settings.

 

Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a one-step Rotavirus Rapid Test that is an in vitro qualitative immunocromatographic assay for the rapid detection of rotavirus antigens in human stool specimen.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test results are intended to aid in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection and to monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic treatment. This Rotavirus Rapid Test is for in vitro diagnostic use only.

 

To perform the Rotavirus rapid test, an aliquot of diluted stool sample is added to the sample well of the Rotavirus rapid test cassette.  The sample on the Rotavirus Rapid Test flows through a label pad containing rotavirus antibody coupled to red-colored colloidal gold.  If the sample on the Rotavirus rapid test contains rotavirus antigens, the antigen will bind to the antibody coated on the colloidal gold particles to form antigen-antibody-gold complexes. These complexes move on the nitrocellulose membrane by capillary action toward the Rotavirus rapid test line region on which rotavirus specific antibodies are immobilized.  As the complexes reach the Rotavirus rapid test line, they will bind to the antibody on the membrane in the form of a line. A second red control line will always appear in the Rotavirus rapid test result window to indicate that the Rotavirus rapid test has been correctly performed and the Rotavirus rapid test device functions properly.  If rotavirus antigen is not present or lower than the detection limit of the Rotavirus rapid test, only the control line will be visible.  If the control line does not develop, the Rotavirus rapid test is invalid.

 

Overall, with its proven high sensitivity and specificity, Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc.’s OneStep Rotavirus Antigen RapiCardTM InstaTest is highly effective, inexpensive, and simple to use. Expected values for any given population should be determined for each laboratory. The positivity rate of any given laboratory may vary depending on geographic location, season, and living environment.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test is available in cassette format only.  Each Rotavirus rapid test cassette contains a test strip with rotavirus specific antibody on the Rotavirus rapid test region of the membrane and colored rotavirus antibody-gold conjugate pad.  For more information about this Rotavirus Rapid Test, or on our Rotavirus ELISA Kits, please contact our Customer Service Department.

DENGUE NS1 ELISA KIT  – PRODUCT FEATURES

 

The Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit is an excellent assay that contains a high level of sensitivity and specificity in detecting the NS1 antigen of Dengue virus.  The Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit is a rapid and reliable ELISA test that contains sufficient reagents for one plate of 96 wells (12 x 8 strips) each.  The user friendly Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit contains components that are convenient and easy to use.  The Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit has easy-to-read controls to determine positive or negative results.  Because of the complications associated with dengue infection, it would be beneficial to have a Dengue NS1 ELISA kit diagnosis early in the illness.  Consequently, the Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit is a useful tool for detecting dengue infection during the first few days of fever. 

 

The Dengue NS1 ELISA kit uses one enzymatically amplified, two-step sandwich-type immunoassay to detect low levels of NS1 in serum.  In this Dengue NS1 ELISA kit, controls and unknown serum samples are diluted in sample dilution buffer, containing secondary antibody, and incubated in microtitration wells.  These wells on the Dengue NS1 ELISA kit have been coated with a highly effective NS1 antibody and then blocked.  NS1 antigens present in the samples on this Dengue NS1 ELISA kit are then sandwiched between the capture and secondary antibodies.  The presence of NS1 antigen on this Dengue NS1 ELISA kit is confirmed by the colorimetric response obtained using an enzyme-conjugate-HRP and liquid TMB substrate.  Once the reaction is stopped on the Dengue NS1 ELISA kit, the enzymatic turnover of the substrate is determined by absorbance measurement at 450 nanometers.  The values obtained, on this Dengue NS1 ELISA kit, for the negative and positive sera serve as guidelines as to determining if a sample contains NS1 antigen.

 

DENGUE NS1 ELISA KIT – TEST RESULTS

Recent studies have confirmed the diagnostic accuracy of Dengue NS1 ELISA Kits for their overall sensitivity to detecting dengue antigens. The sensitivity and specificity of Dengue NS1 ELISA Kits were determined to be good, and the Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit was judged an effective tool for diagnosis of dengue infection, especially within the first four days of illness.  Early detection of dengue virus by a Dengue NS1 ELISA test can help in early confirmation and management of this virus.  The Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit has the ability to improve the diagnostic algorithm contributing significantly to the clinical treatment and control of dengue viral infections.  This Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit would be applicable for both dengue diagnosis and epidemiological studies. Collectively, various studies indicate that tests like this Dengue NS1 ELISA kit deserve inclusion in the diagnostic approach to detection of dengue virus in patients.

 

The Dengue ELISA Kits are available in two formats:  Dengue ELISA Kit for detection of lgG, lgM and lgG/lM antibodies, and Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit for detection of NS1 antigens in human serum.  For more information on either the Dengue ELISA Kit or Dengue NS1 ELISA Kit, please contact Customer Service.

The entire procedure of Dengue NS1 Rapid Test takes approximately 30 minutes.

 

Timely, sensitive, and specific diagnosis of dengue virus is important for early detection of dengue virus infection.  However, some available tools for dengue diagnosis are time-consuming.  The use of tests like the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test as a first-line test for the screening of dengue infected patients, using serum samples collected during the onset of clinical symptoms, could help to accelerate the diagnosis of dengue fever in clinical diagnostic laboratories.    Rapid and easy diagnosis of dengue using Dengue NS1 Rapid Test can assist patient triage and care management.  For example, during an epidemic outbreak, the ability to triage those patients suspected of dengue fever and to quickly establish an anti-viral therapy with use of the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test, might improve the rates of disease control drastically.  Recent studies have shown that sensitivity and specificity tests, like the Dengue NS1 rapid test, were highly specific to DENV NS1, and the Dengue NS1 rapid test produced enhanced diagnoses at high detection rates.  Thus, the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test presents the ideal method of testing as it is rapid, easily applicable, sensitive, and highly specific.

 

DENGUE NS1 RAPID TEST – FAST RESULTS

Dengue virus, a virus belonging to the Flavavirus group of viruses, is one of the most significant mosquito-borne diseases in the world in terms of morbidity and mortality. Transmitted principally by the mosquito types Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, the virus is found commonly throughout the tropic and subtropic regions of the world. Symptoms of dengue fever include high fever, headache, muscle pain and skin rash. The complications often associated with this infection are dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome.

 

The detection of DENV NS1 using the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test offers a fast route to a dengue diagnosis.  Physicians using this Dengue NS1 Rapid Test in early convalescence diagnostic strategy on patients should be able to obtain rapid and specific dengue diagnosis within a few minutes.  The positive correlation between viral load, disease progression and detection of NS1, suggests that tests like the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test might be a valuable test to include in dengue triage protocols in areas of high incidence of dengue infection.

 

The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of NS1 antigen in human serum.  The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test membrane is pre-coated with NS1 specific antibody on the Dengue NS1 Rapid test line region and utilizes a separate control to assure assay flow and performance.  If NS1 antigen is present on the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test, a red line will appear at the test line.  The red line at the control region should always appear if the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test is performed correctly.  The presence of this red line on the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test verifies that proper flow has occurred and catastrophic failure of the conjugate has not occurred.  The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test is positive for the NS1 antigen when the control line (C) and the test line (T) appear in the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test area. A faint line on the Dengue NS1 Rapid Test is considered a positive result. The Dengue NS1 Rapid Test is negative when just the control line appears.

FOOD ALLERGEN ELISA KITS – Food Elisa kits – Food Allergen Tests

FOOD SAFETY WITH FOOD ALLERGEN ELISA KITS

 

Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. develops, manufacturers, and distributes a wide range of Food Allergen ELISA Kits to assist in the screening and analyses underlying allergen control and food safety as carried out by the food industry, laboratories, physicians, consumers, government agencies, and law enforcement authorities.  These Food Allergen ELISA Kits are screening and quantitative food allergen tests to detect food allergens that increasingly cause allergies to millions of consumers, and to improve food safety of commercially sold food products.  Our unique Food Allergen ELISA Kits are specifically suited to detect allergens, such as almond, walnut, mustard, lupine, hazelnut, peanut, soy, egg, gluten, and beta-lactose/milk residues.  These Food Allergen ELISA Kits are an economical and convenient way to pinpoint specific food allergens to ensure food safety.  Findings on these food allergen tests give a detailed analytical result that can be used to target and eliminate sources of irritation to individual consumers and safeguard food safety in certain segment populations.

 

FOOD SAFETY USING FOOD ALLERGEN TESTS

Food allergies and labeling continue to be a concern for consumers, government, and the food industry worldwide.  To improve consumer food safety, comply with food allergen screening and labeling laws, and to protect their own reputation and business, food producers need analytical methods to monitor the presence of food allergens in their products to certify food safety.  How can food producers effectively select and implement a detection method from the range of methods available to guarantee food safety?  One of the most widely used methods available are food allergen tests, such as that offered in the Food Allergen ELISA Kits.  Food manufacturers protect those with food allergies by clearly labeling their products with a list of ingredients.  However, Food allergen tests ensure food manufacturers that an unlabeled and potentially dangerous ingredient did not make its way into a food product.  Food Allergen Testing can also add to, and protect, a company’s reputation.  Currently, some companies put a precautionary statement like “may contain peanut and peanut products” on the ingredient label, even though there is very little chance the product actually contains any peanut byproduct.  If food allergen screening, or food allergen testing, is done, then companies may be able to minimize the use of precautionary labels to assure food safety.

 

Food allergens constitute a high risk for the food industry that wants to guarantee the food safety of their products. The allergenic protein that causes reactions is highly stable and heat resistant.  The only safe course of action to ensure food safety is complete segregation of allergens and correct labeling practices to guide allergic consumers.  If products are mislabeled or contamination occurs, an allergic individual may experience a reaction called anaphylactic shock, a potentially deadly condition that is increasingly observed in the population, particular children.  Food Allergen screening and labeling legislation is in place around the world and food manufacturers increasingly are mandated to conduct formal allergen control, which includes regular food allergen testing.  Many countries, including the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the European Union, have adopted their own food allergen testing and proper food allergen screening and labeling practices to ensure food safety.

 

These Food Allergen ELISA Kits are Immunoassay for the Quantitative Determination of a specific food allergen screening of food.  The Food Allergen tests are based on the binding of allergenic protein by specific antibodies. These Food Allergen ELISA Kits are enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) that have been developed and are available for the detection of different food allergens.  With the availability of these Food Allergen ELISA Kits, routine food allergen screening of products for the presence of specific food allergens is possible.

 

POPULAR FOOD ALLERGEN TESTS

 

The prevalence of food allergies is increasing and there is no cure for the condition.  Food allergic consumers must avoid food allergens and rely on clear and accurate food allergen screening and labeling for establishing food safety.  However, traces of allergenic substances in food may cause problems for allergic individuals as they are inadvertently exposed to these silent allergy causing materials.  Food Allergen ELISA Kits have been found to be increasingly popular among physicians who are looking for a reliable method to aid in the diagnosis of an otherwise difficult diagnostic problem.  The Food Allergen kits will identify the most common food allergy triggers and are a good starting point to identify problem areas.  Specific concerns can be addressed with additional Food Allergen ELISA Kits.  Food Allergen ELISA Kits are designed to detect one allergen at a time.  For this reason, numerous food allergen tests may be needed to detect multiple food allergens.

 

OTHER RELATED FOOD ALLERGEN TEST PRODUCTS

 

Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers some of the most extensive collection of food allergen testing products.  An array of Food Allergen ELISA kits have been assembled to serve our customers’ needs.  Benefits of such a range of food Allergen ELISA test kit options include brand name protection, compliance with product and labeling requirements, prevention of costly product recalls, duty of responsibility, and ensuring consumer confidence.

HCV ELISA KIT – DETECTION OF HEPATITIS C VIRUS

 

How do doctors find hepatitis C antibodies in the blood? To determine if hepatitis C antibodies are in the blood, doctors use a screening test called ELISA, which stands for Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay.  There are many different ELISA tests, so doctors must use one specifically for hepatitis C.  This is where the HCV ELISA Kit comes in.  The HCV ELISA Kit will search the blood sample for the hepatitis C antibody.  This HCV ELISA Kit is very sensitive and picks up approximately 95% of people infected with hepatitis C antibodies.  If the HCV ELISA Kit test finds any hepatitis C antibodies, that means an HCV infection is present.  The HCV ELISA Kit is tempered by its sensitivity.  For example, if the HCV ELISA Kit tests negative, patients are most likely free of hepatitis C infection.  However, if the HCV ELISA Kit test is positive, there is a small possibility that the result could be incorrect, resulting in a “false-positive.”  False-positives on this HCV ELISA Kit usually indicate more testing is required.

Since the introduction in 1990 of anti-HCV screening of blood donations, like this HCV ELLISA Kit, the incidence of this infection in transfusion recipients has been significantly reduced. The first generation of HCV ELISA Kit tests showed limited sensitivity and specificity and was produced using recombinant proteins complementary to the NS4 (c100-3) region of the HCV genome as antigens.  Second generation HCV ELISA Kit tests, which included recombinant / synthetic antigens from the Core (c22) and nonstructural regions NS3 (c33c, c100-3) and NS4 (c100-3, c200), resulted in a remarked improvement in sensitivity and specificity. Clinical studies show that a significant amount of HCV infected individuals develop antibodies to NS5 non-structural protein of the virus.  For this, the third generation HCV ELISA Kit tests include antigens from the NS5 region of the viral genome in addition to NS3 (c200), NS4 (c200) and the Core (c22).  Third generation HCV ELISA KIT tests have improved sensitivity and shorten the time between infection with HCV and the appearance of detectable antibodies (window period) to 60 days.

HIV ELISA KIT (ANTI-HIV 1+2 ELISA KIT) – CE APPROVED*

The HIV ELISA KIT ( Anti-HIV 1+2 ELISA Kit ) is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA kit) intended for qualitative detection of antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV) type 1(group M – O) or type 2 in human serum or plasma samples. This HIV ELISA Kit can be utilized for screening of blood donors and/or as an aid in the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 (the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome – AIDS).

 

Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by using this HIV ELISA Kit in order to test for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigen can generally be detected from this HIV ELISA Kit during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The antibodies to (HIV-1) and/or (HIV-2) can be detected throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS. Therefore, the use of highly sensitive antibody assays, like this HIV ELISA Kit, is the primary approach in serodiagnosis of HIV infection.  Apart from sexual transmission, the principal route of infection with HIV is blood transfusion.  HIV be can present both in cellular and cell-free fractions of human blood. Therefore, all donations of blood or plasma should be tested, using kits like these HIV ELISA Kits, due to the risk of HIV transmission through contaminated blood. This can be effectively achieved by testing for the antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 by using a highly sensitive HIV ELISA Kit test like the ones offered by Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics. Inc.

 

HIV 1+2 ELISA is a two step incubation antigen “sandwich” enzyme immunoassay kit, (HIV ELISA Kit) which uses polystyrene microwell strips pre-coated with recombinant HIV antigens expressed in E.coli (recombinant HIV-1gp41, gp120, and recombinant HIV-2 gp-36). Patient’s serum or plasma sample from this HIV ELISA KIt, is added, and during the first incubation step, the specific HIV1/2 antibodies will be captured inside the wells if present. The microwells are then washed to remove unbound serum proteins.  A second set of recombinant antigens conjugated to the enzyme Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP-Conjugate) and expressing the same epitopes as the pre-coated antigens is added, and during the second incubation on this HIV ELISA Kit test, they will bind to the captured antibody. The microwells on the HIV ELISA KIt are washed to remove unbound conjugate, and chromogen solutions are added into the wells. In wells containing the antigen-antibody-antigen (HRP) “sandwich” immunocomplex, the colorless chromogens are hydrolyzed by the bound HRP conjugate to a blue colored product. The blue color on this HIV ELISA Kit test turns yellow after the reaction is stopped with sulfuric acid. The amount of color intensity can be measured and it is proportional to the amount of antibody captured in the wells of this HIV ELISA Kit test and to the sample respectively. Wells containing samples negative for anti-HIV 1/2 remain colorless on this HIV ELISA Kit test.

 

* this HIV ELISA Kit is certified for use in Europe and any other country in the world, except the United States.

 

HIV ELISA KIT (HIV 1,2 Ag/Ab) ELISA Kit*

The HIV ELISA KIT –  HIV Ag &Ab is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for qualitative determination of antigens or antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type 1 and/or type 2 in human serum or plasma. The method is also known as 4th generation ELISA for HIV detection. This HIV ELILSA Kit is intended for screening of blood donors and as an aid for the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1and/or HIV-2 e.g. the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

 

The human immunodeficiency viruses type 1 and type 2 are the etiological agents of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and related conditions. HIV has been isolated from patients with AIDS, AIDS related complex (ARC) and from healthy individuals at high risk for AIDS. Infection with HIV is followed by an acute flu-like illness. This phase may remain unnoticed and the relationship to HIV infection may not be clear in many cases. The acute phase is typically followed by an asymptomatic carrier state, which progresses to clinical AIDS in about 50% of infected individuals within 10 years after seroconversion. Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by testing (using the HIV ELISA Kit) for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigens can generally be detected on this HIV ELISA Kit test during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The Antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 can be detected, using this HIV ELISA Kit, throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at, or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS.

The H.pylori Antibody ELISA Kit uses an antigen preparation that has been partially purified to yield principally high molecular weight H.pylori membrane proteins.  Any specific H.pylori antibody, lgA, lgG, or lgM antigen, is coated on the surface of micro wells.  Diluted patient serum is added to wells, and the H.pylori lgA, lgG, or lgM specific antibody, if present, binds to the antigen.  All unbound materials are washed away.  After adding enzyme conjugate, it binds to the antibody-antigen complex.  Excess enzyme conjugate is washed off and TMB Chromogenic substrate is added.  The enzyme conjugate catalytic reaction is stopped at a specific time.  The intensity of the color generated is proportional to the amount of H.pylori lgA, lgG, or lgM specific antibody in the sample.  The results of the H.pylori Antibody ELISA KIt test are read by a micro well reader compared in a parallel manner with calibrator and controls.  The H.pylori Antibody ELISA Kit allows for a sensitive and specific interpretation and detection of H.pylori in the system.
