Tumor Marker Procalcitonin PCT Rapid Test Device Diagnostic Kit with Disposable Pipette
【INTENDED USE OF PCT TEST】
The Procalcitonin (PCT) Rapi Test (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the the qualitative detection of Procalcitonin in serum or plasma.
【CONTENTS OF RAPID TEST】
• Rapid Test with desiccant
• Instruction manual
【INTRODUCTION OF PCT】
Procalcitonin (PCT) is a small protein that comprises 116 amino acid residues with a molecular weight of approximately 13 kDa which was first described by Moullec et al. in 1984. PCT is produced normally in C-cells of the thyroid glands. In 1993, the elevated level of PCT in patients with a system infection of bacterial origin was reported and PCT is now considered to be the main marker of disorders accompanied by systemic inflammation and sepsis. The diagnostic value of PCT is important due to the close correlation between PCT concentration and the severity of inflammation. It was shown that “inflammatory” PCT is not produced in C-cells. Cells of neuroendocrine origin are presumably the source of PCT during inflammation.
【PRINCIPLE OF PCT RAPID TEST】
The PCT Rapid Test (Serum/Plasma) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of PCT in serum or plasma. The membrane is precoated with anti-PCT antibody on the test line region of the strip. During testing, the serum or plasma specimen reacts with the particle coated with anti-PCT antibody. The mixture migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with anti-PCT antibody on the membrane and generate a colored line. The presence of this colored line in the test region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
Allow test cassette, serum or plasma specimen, and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
1. Remove the test cassette from the sealed foil pouch and use it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch.
2. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 1 drop of serum or plasma (approximately 25µL) to the specimen well of test cassette, then add 1 drop of buffer (approx. 40µL) and start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well. See illustration below.
3. Wait for the colored line to appear. The result should be read at 15 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.
1,The kit should be stored at 2-30°C until the expiry date printed on the sealed pouch.
2,The test must remain in the sealed pouch until use. Keep away from direct sunlight, moisture and heat.
3,Do not freeze.
4,Care should be taken to protect the components of the kit from contamination.
5,Do not use if there is evidence of microbial contamination or precipitation. Biological contamination of dispensing equipment, containers or reagents can lead to false results.
