CDIATM Hepatitis B e Antigen Test Strip (DTS384)

Intended Use

The OneStep HBeAg Rapid Test is a direct binding test for the visual detection of hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) in serum,to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of hepatitis B infection. The OneStep HBeAg Rapid Test is based on the principle of sandwich immunoassay for the determination of HBeAg in serum. Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are employed to identify HBeAg specifically. This one step test is very sensitive and only takes 10-20 minutes. Test results are read visually without any need for additional instrumentation.

Product Introduction

General Description
Hepatitis B is an infectious inflammatory illness of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that affects hominoidea, including humans. About a third of the world population has been infected at one point in their lives, including 350 million who are chronic carriers. HBeAg is produced by proteolytic processing of the pre-core protein. Shortly after the appearance of the HBsAg, another antigen called hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) will appear. Traditionally, the presence of HBeAg in a host's serum is associated with much higher rates of viral replication and enhanced infectivity; however, variants of the hepatitis B virus do not produce the 'e' antigen, so this rule does not always hold true. During the natural course of an infection, the HBeAg may be cleared, and antibodies to the 'e' antigen (anti-HBe) will arise immediately afterwards. This conversion is usually associated with a dramatic decline in viral replication.
