HCV RAPID TESTS | HEPATITIS MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

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.

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.
