TB IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test
The TB IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test is a reliable and efficient lateral flow rapid chromatographic immunoassay that is designed for the quick and simultaneous detection and differentiation of anti-Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. TB) IgM and IgG in human serum, plasma, or whole blood. This test is intended to be used by medical professionals to provide a preliminary result for the diagnosis of M. TB infections, with results available within 15 minutes.
The test is highly accurate, with an IgM-positive result indicating a fresh M. TB infection, while an IgG-positive result suggests a previous or chronic infection. Additionally, the test uses M. TB-specific antigens 7-9, enabling it to detect IgM antibodies even in individuals recently vaccinated with BCG who may have been exposed to M. TB.
The TB IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test is incredibly user-friendly and can be easily performed by minimally skilled personnel without requiring any cumbersome laboratory equipment. The simple procedure involves adding one drop of the specimen and one drop of sample diluent, with results available within 10-15 minutes.
Other key features of this test include:
Its ability to simultaneously detect and differentiate anti-TB IgG and IgM
It uses blood specimens instead of sputum for easier specimen collection
Its effectiveness in aiding the diagnosis of pulmonary and extrapulmonary TB.
Each package of the TB IgG/IgM Combo Rapid Test includes:
30 Individually packed cassette devices
30 Plastic droppers
1 Sample Diluent (5mL/bottle)
1 Package Insert
1 Instructions for use (IFU)
Overall, this test provides a reliable, accurate, and user-friendly solution for the preliminary diagnosis of M. TB infections.
