BiocardR Dengue Ag (NS1) Rapid Test Kit is a rapid immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of Dengue NS1 Antigen in the human serum / plasma.
Trivitron Biocard® Dengue Ag (NS1) Rapid Test Kit is a diagnostic tool designed to quickly and accurately detect the presence of the Dengue NS1 antigen in human serum or plasma samples. It utilizes an immunochromatographic assay, which relies on specific antigen-antibody interactions to produce visible results.
Dengue fever is a viral condition transmitted by mosquitoes, and early detection is crucial for effective management and treatment. The NS1 antigen is a viral protein produced by the dengue virus during the early stages of infection. The presence of NS1 antigen in the serum or plasma can be an early diagnostic marker for dengue fever.
The test kit is coated with specific antibodies capable of binding to the Dengue NS1 antigen. When a patient's serum or plasma sample is added to the test kit, the specimen migrates along the test strip. If the Dengue NS1 antigen is present in the sample, it will bind to the corresponding antibodies on the test lines. This interaction triggers a visible line or color change, indicating a positive result for the presence of the Dengue NS1 antigen.
The Biocard® Dengue Ag (NS1) Rapid Test Kit offers a convenient and rapid diagnostic solution for healthcare providers, particularly in regions where dengue fever is endemic. Its reliable performance and ability to detect the NS1 antigen quickly can aid in early diagnosis, enabling timely intervention and appropriate patient management.
