SPECIMEN COLLECTION AND PREPARATION
1) Sampling of pharyngeal swab
Firmly insert a pharyngeal swab into the pharynx
through the oral cavity, and collect the mucosal
epithelium by swabbing the posterior wall of the
pharynx and the palatine tonsil several times,
centering around the rubefacient portion. Avoid
touching saliva. If the specimen is mixed with
saliva, the test result lines may become fainter on
the test plate.
3) Sampling of nasal aspirate
Firmly insert one tube of the suction trap into
the suction pump, and the other tube into a nasal
cavity through an external nostril. Collect the nasal
discharge aspirate in the suction trap by operating
the suction pump. Soak a swab in the nasal aspirate
collected by the trap, and let the swab absorb the
nasal aspirate well. When nasal aspirate is taken
using a micropipette or other instruments, dilute
the nasal aspirate twofold with physiological saline
and sample 200
μL of this dilution.
2) Sampling of nasal swab
Firmly insert a nasal swab into the nasal cavity and
collect mucosal epithelium by swabbing the nasal
turbinate several times.
4) Sampling of keratoconjunctivitis swab
Use a pharyngeal swab, and collect the cuticle by
scratching hard the keratoconjunctivitis several
times. If necessary, use a surface anesthetic and
scratch the area of inflammation as strongly as you
Adenovirus Rapid Test Kit
This product is a rapid immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of adenovirus antigen in nasopharyngeal swabs. It is intended for in vitro diagnostic use only.
Adenoviruses are a common cause of respiratory infections, including the common cold. They can also cause conjunctivitis (pink eye) and gastroenteritis (diarrhea). Adenoviruses are most common in children under the age of 5 and in people with weakened immune systems.
This test utilizes a monoclonal antibody to capture adenovirus antigen present in the specimen. The antigen-antibody complex then binds to a second antibody labeled with colloidal gold particles. If adenovirus antigen is present in the specimen, a visible band will appear at the "T" line. A control band will always appear at the "C" line to indicate proper test performance.
- Test cassettes (individually sealed in foil pouches)
- Desiccant sachets
- Sample extraction tubes
- Sample extraction buffer
- Nozzles with filters
- Sterile swabs
- Instructions for Use
Storage and Stability
Store the kit at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. The test cassettes are stable for 24 months when stored as directed.
- Collect a nasopharyngeal swab using a sterile swab.
- Insert the swab into the patient's nostril and gently rotate it against the back wall of the nasopharynx.
- Remove the swab and place it into the sample extraction tube.
- Open the foil pouch and remove the test cassette.
- Add 4 drops of sample extraction buffer to the sample extraction tube.
- Squeeze the sample extraction tube to release the sample into the buffer.
- Remove the nozzle with filter from the sample extraction tube and place it on the sample port of the test cassette.
- Add 3 drops of the sample-buffer mixture to the sample port.
- Start the timer.
- Read the results after 15 minutes.
Interpretation of Results
- Positive: A visible band appears at both the "T" and "C" lines.
- Negative: Only a visible band appears at the "C" line.
- Invalid: No visible band appears at the "C" line. Repeat the test.
- This test is for qualitative detection only and does not provide quantitative results.
- A negative result does not rule out the possibility of adenovirus infection.
- The test may give false positive results due to cross-reactivity with other viruses.
- Use the test kit immediately after opening the packaging.
- Wear gloves and eye protection when handling specimens.
- Dispose of used test kits and specimens properly.
