Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Antigen Test (Colloidal Gold)(anteriornasal).
This test is based on the immuno-chromatographic technology of colloidal gold and uses the double antibody sandwich method to detect COVID-19 antigen in human throat or nasal swab.
– Listed by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) –
– Special approval according to §11 paragraph 1 of the Medical Devices Act (MPG) of antigen tests for self-administration by laypersons (self-tests) –
This kit is used for the in vitro qualitative determination of Covid 19 antigen using a human nasal or throat swab. The test is used as a rapid test in individuals with suspected covid-19 and can be used for repeat nucleic acid detection in patients after discharge. A positive test result indicates that the sample contains coronavirus antigen. A negative test result does not rule out the possibility of infection.
This kit is based on the colloidal gold immunochromatographic method and uses the double antibody sandwich method to detect the novel coronavirus antigen in human throat or nasal swab. In the so-called Double-Antibody-Sandwich ELISA (DAS-ELISA), the enzyme is not bound to the antigen-specific antibody. Instead, another enzyme-coupled antibody directed against the specific antibody is added. The test is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with SARS-CoV-2.
