We are Antigen test kit Manufacturer. An antigen is a molecule capable of stimulating an immune response. They may be proteins, polysaccharides, lipids or nucleic acids. Each antigen has distinct surface features that are recognized by the immune system. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has several known antigens, including its nucleocapsid phosphoprotein and spike glycoprotein, which are the visible protrusions on its surface. An antibody is a Y-shaped protein produced by B cells of the immune system in response to exposure to antigens. The tip of each Y-shaped arm contains antigen binding sites (paratopes) that bind to a specific portion of the antigen’s surface (epitope). This binding helps to eliminate antigens from the body, either by direct neutralization or by “tagging” them for elimination by other arms of the immune system. When infected with SARS-CoV-2, the body produces antibodies that bind specifically to the spike proteins and other antigens to help eliminate the virus. This binding can be harnessed to develop antibody and antigen-based diagnostic tests.
- Expert advice:
- 1. For in vitro diagnostic use only. 2. Does not use test kit beyond expiry date. 3. The test device should not be reused. 4. Do not freeze the Kits. 5. Do not smoke, drink or eat while handling specimen. 6. Wear personal protective equipment, such as gloves and lab coats when handling kit reagents. Wash hands thoroughly after the test are done. 7.

- How to use:
- 1. For in vitro diagnostic use only. 2. Carefully read IFU for using the COVID-19 Ag Test. 3. Insert a sterile swab into the nostril of the patient, reaching the surface of the posterior nasopharynx. 4. Withdraw the sterile swab from the nasal cavity. 5. Insert the swab into an extraction buffer tube. While squeezing the buffer tube, stir the swab more than 5 times. 6. Remove the swab while squeezing the sides of the tube to extract the liquid from the swab. 7. Press the nozzle cap tightly the tube. 8. Apply 3 drops of extracted specimen to the specimen well of the test device. 9. Read the test result in 20-30 minutes. 10. Do not read result after 30 minutes.
