Intended use of the test kit
This One-Step Test is intended to use as practical/routine screening test that can be done in a few minutes. This test kit is designed to detect C-Reactive Protein by use of a Rapid Immuno-chromatic Assay.
Principle of the test kit
This CRP One-Step Test is based on a chromatographic test strip, a purified specific immunoglobulin which react with CRP. Polyclonal CRP antibody is conjugated to colloidal gold particles and the dog specific CRP is immobilized on the strip in the test zone “T”. CRP in a sample that is applied to the strip at the sample zone “S” will bind to the gold particles which then migrate to zone “T”.
No colour change in zone “T” indicates a positive test. Anti-Dog antibodies are also immobilized on the strip in the control zone “C”, which binds the gold conjugate to indicate that the test is working properly.
