Principle Of The Test
The Chlamydia Rapid Test Device (Swab/ Urine) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Chlamydia antigen from female cervical swab, male urethral swab and male urine specimens. In this test, antibody specific to the Chlamydia antigen is coated on the test line region of the test. During te sting, the extracted antigen solution reacts with an antibody to Chlamydia that is coated onto particles. The mixture migrates up to react with the antibody to Chlamydia on the membrane and generate a colored line in the test line region. The presence of this colored line in the test line 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 volum e of specimen has been added a nd membrane wicking has occurred.
