Hepatitis Rapid Tests | Rapid tests

Hepatitis refers to a group of viral infections that have the potential to cause major health issues for sufferers. Hepatitis A, B and C all affect the liver, but the severity of each condition varies according to the type of virus. Most people who have hepatitis A get better within a short period of time and require no treatment. However, people who suffer from hepatitis B can suffer from a chronic infection that has the potential to lead to liver cancer. Hepatitis C can lead to complications including cirrhosis and liver failure, so it is important for people who suffer from hepatitis to be diagnosed and treated.

Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a full range of Hepatitis Rapid Tests that help doctors quickly diagnosis their patients to ensure prompt treatment to be provided as soon as possible. Waiting for a diagnosis is a stressful process for patients, and medical providers who care about the overall well-being of their patients are dedicated to providing a quick response to offer peace of mind. These tests can detect the presence of antigens or antibodies related to hepatitis. Tests are available to evaluate the level of antigens or antibodies present in serum, plasma or whole blood to provide an accurate diagnosis. These tests can even be used on donated blood to ensure that the virus is not spread to others.

HCV RAPID TESTS – INEXPENSIVE – CONVENIENT – QUICK RESULTS

 

HCV Rapid Tests are vital diagnostic tools for clinics and hospitals to have if a hepatitis C infection is suspected.  These HCV Rapid tests can detect hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in human serum within minutes. In some regions, patients are tested where the blood is sent out and results are not confirmed until days later.  Unfortunately, in these instances, many patients do not return for results.  The HCV Rapid Test mitigates this recurring problem, and allows patients the opportunity to discuss diagnosis and treatment the same day of visit.  HCV Rapid Tests are safe, quick, and simple to use.  Some of the most effective means of detecting antibodies to hepatitis C virus are contained in these tests.  The anti-HCV Rapid Test is based on the principle of inter-second antibody enzyme immunoassay for the determination of anti-HCV in serum/plasma.  Recombinant HCV antigens are employed to specifically identify anti-HCV antibodies.  The tests are very sensitive and rapid – results are obtained in less than 20 minutes.

 

Because of epidemic proportions of Hepatitis C infection in some regions of the world, the global demand for highly effective HCV testing methods has increased.  Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. a leading manufacturer and distributor of Drug Tests, Rapid Tests, and ELISA Tests worldwide, is pleased to offer inexpensive and easy-to-use HCV Rapid Tests – Hepatitis C Rapid Tests for distribution throughout the world.*  The HCV Rapid Tests are designed for the special needs of any health organization that is looking for accurate, safe, and cost-effective diagnostic testing methods to detect Hepatitis C infections.  Our inventory of top quality HCV Rapid Tests includes five distinct tests for detection of hepatitis C antibodies.  Three of these tests are HCV Rapid Test strips; the other two are in cassette format.  All HCV Rapid Tests are available worldwide, with the exception of the United States.  All five HCV Rapid tests are for in-vitro diagnostic use only.

This HCV Rapid Test – OneStep HCV RapiCard Insta Test (cassette style)is a rapid, direct binding test for the visual detection of hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in serum or plasma.  This test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of hepatitis C infection and is based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay for determination of anti-HCV in serum or plasma.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HCV specifically.  This HCV Rapid Test is very sensitive and takes only 10-20 minutes for results to be read.

ONE STEP ANTI-HCV RAPI CARD INSTA TEST – CASSETTE (#118778-1)

The HCV Rapid Test- OneStep Anti-HCV RapiCard Insta Test-cassette (Serum/Whole Blood-Plasma) is a rapid, direct binding test for the visual detection of hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in serum and whole blood.  This test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of hepatitis C infection and is based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay for determination of anti-HCV in serum and whole blood.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HCV specifically.  The HCV Rapid Test is very sensitive and only takes 10-20 minutes for results.  This OneStep Anti-HCV Rapid Test-cassette can be run on serum or whole blood samples.

 

NOTABLE QUALITIES – HCV RAPID TESTS (STRIP FORMAT) 

HCV RAPID TEST SERUM – 3.5 mm STRIP (#118775-1)

This HCV Rapid Test is a OneStep Anti-HCV RapiDip Insta Test (3.5 mm) that is a direct binding test for the visual detection of hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in serum.  This test is based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay for determination of anti-HCV in serum.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HCV specifically.  This HCV Rapid Test is very sensitive and only takes 10-20 minutes for the test result to be read.   For serum, collect blood into a container without anticoagulant.  Allow the blood to clot, and then separate the serum from the clot.  If the specimen cannot be tested on the day of collection, store the serum specimen in a refrigerator or freezer.  Stir and bring the specimen to room temperature before testing.  HCV Rapid Test results are read visually without an instrument.  If the test result is negative, only one colored band appears on the control C region of the test, and there is no apparent band on the test (T) region.  If the HCV Rapid Test is positive, in addition to a pink-colored control C band, a distinct pink-colored band will also appear on the test (T) region of the test.  This HCV Rapid Test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.

HCV RAPID TEST SERUM – 5 mm STRIP (#118774-1)

Like the HCV Rapid Test – 3.5 mm Strip shown above, this test is a OneStep Anti-HCV RapiDip Insta Test – 5 mm Strip format that is also a direct binding test for the visual detection of hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in serum.  This test is based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay for determination of anti-HCV in serum.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HCV specifically.  This test is very sensitive and only takes 10-20 minutes for the results to be read.   The preparation and storage procedures (same as above 3.5mm HCV Rapid Test) are simple and easy to follow.  In addition, results are read visually without an instrument.  If the test result is negative, only one colored band appears on the control C region, and there is no apparent band on the test (T) region.  If the test is positive, in addition to a pink-colored control C band, a distinct pink-colored band will also appear on the test (T) region.  This HCV Rapid Test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.

HCV SERUM/PLASMA RAPI FLO TEST (#118771-1)

This Anti-HCV Ab Rapid Test (HCV Rapid Test) is a rapid, direct binding test for the detection of antibodies to hepatitis C (anti-HCV Ab) in serum or plasma. The HCV Rapid Test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of hepatitis C infection.  The Anti-HCV Ab Rapid Test  is based on the principle of inter-second antibody enzyme immunoassay for the determination of anti-HCV in serum/plasma.  Recombinant HCV antigens are employed to specifically identify anti-HCV antibodies.  This test is very sensitive and only takes 3 minutes.  If the specimen cannot be tested on the day of collection, store the serum specimen in a refrigerator or freezer.  Bring all reagents, test devices, specimens, references, and other materials to room temperature prior to testing.  The results are ready visually without an instrument.  The formation of a large dot or a line of three smaller dots on the provides an easy readout for positive and negative test results.  The three smaller dots on the also serve as an internal control. The center dot on the  is a weak positive control and the other outer dots are the strong positive control.  If the HCV Rapid Test is negative, only three small dots on the control dot bar are visible.  A strong positive  is indicated by both the round spot and the control dot bar being visible.  A weak positive results when the round spot is darker than or equal to the center dot on the control dot bar, but weaker than other dots on the dot bar.  This HCV Rapid Test is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.
