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 Helicobacter pylori ab by use of a Rapid Immunochromatic Assay.
Principle of the test kit
The Helicobacter pylori ab One- Step Test is based on the detection of antibodies against Helicobacter pylori. For this Helicobacter pylori antigens are conjugated to colloidal gold particles and Helicobacter pylori antigens are immobilized on the strip in the test zone “T”. Antibodies against Helicobacter pylori 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 color change in zone “T” indicates a positive test. Anti-H. pylori is also immobilized on the strip in the control zone “C”, which binds the gold conjugate to indicate that the test is working properly.
