A Broad Overview of Rapid STD Testing | Infectious Disease rapid tests

Rapid STD Testing | RapidTest.comIn a world where sexually transmitted diseases are still an eminently serious problem, individuals who think they may be at risk will likely want to consult with a reputable testing facility as soon as possible. Infectious Disease Rapid tests can give men and women an immediate answer as to whether or not they are infected. While a more comprehensive test will be able to confirm the results, patients can begin taking prescriptive medication to ameliorate the symptoms of the disease before it progresses to the next stage.

A number of sexually transmitted diseases can be diagnosed with rapid testing, such as HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The tests are designed to look for specific antibodies in the blood/Serum or plasma that are associated with the most common sexually transmitted diseases. Unlike bacteria cultures, which must be sent to a lab, rapid STD tests will provide a reasonably accurate answer within just a few minutes. Patients will receive their diagnosis at the clinic or the doctor’s office.

Rapid testing is eminently useful for physicians. If, for example, individuals test positive for HIV, a treatment plan can be immediately devised. While false negatives will still need to be ruled out, the benefits of this testing method far outweigh the drawbacks. Come to Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. to see the selection of rapid STD tests we have available.

Diagnosing Chlamydia using our Chlamydia Rapid Tests

Chlamydia Rapid Tests | RapidTest.comHaving a sexually transmitted disease is problematic for a sexually active person. First of all, it’s painful and generally unsightly. Second of all, it’s easy to pass it on to another person without using proper protection. Help your patients discover if they have a sexually transmitted disease using rapid tests from Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. Our business offers a wide array of STD tests, including Chlamydia Rapid Tests for both men and women.

Chlamydia is a relatively common sexually transmitted disease that is caused by the Chlamydia trachomatis bacterium. This disease can be transmitted during vaginal sex, as well as oral and anal sex. In men, it usually infects the urethra, causing a white discharge that may or may not be painful. When it affects women, they generally have no symptoms and do not even know that they are infected. This is why it’s very important to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases in individuals who are actively seeking out new sexual partners. You may not even know you have it!

The Dengue Rapid Test, or OneStep Dengue RapiCardTM InstaTest, is a immunochromatographic assay for the simultaneous detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Dengue virus in human whole blood, serum or plasma. The assay is used as a screening test for Dengue viral infection and as an aid for differential diagnosis of primary and secondary infections in conjunction with other criteria.  This Dengue Rapid Test is a new generation immunochromatographic test using recombinant dengue viral antigens of all four serotypes to detect specific antibody response. This convenient and easy-to-use Dengue Rapid Test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.  The Dengue Fever Rapid Test provides an excellent methodology for specifically detecting anti-dengue IgG and IgM antibodies. The presence of high titers of IgG antibodies on the Dengue rapid test does not interfere with the detection of IgM antibodies in the sample.  By using a mixture of highly purified dengue proteins, the Dengue rapid test is able to detect all 4 Dengue serotypes.

Serum, plasma or whole blood samples may be used with this Dengue rapid test. When a specimen is added to the Dengue rapid test, IgG and IgM antibodies in the specimen sample react with blue particles coated with dengue envelope proteins. As this specimen/particle mixture migrates along the length of the Dengue rapid test, the anti-dengue IgG or IgM antibody particle complex is captured by the relevant IgG and/or IgM test bands located in the Dengue rapid test device window causing a pale to dark blue band to form at the IgG or IgM region of the test device window. The intensity of the bands on the Dengue rapid test will vary depending upon the amount of antibody present in the sample. The appearance of any color in a specific Dengue rapid test region (IgG or IgM) should be considered as positive for that particular antibody type (IgG or IgM).  A red procedural control line should always develop in the Dengue rapid test device window to indicate that the Dengue rapid test has been performed properly.

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.
