Penicillin is a group of Beta-lactam antibiotics used in the treatment of bacterial infections caused by susceptible, usually Gram-positive, organisms. ß-lactam antibiotics work by inhibiting the formation of peptidoglycan cross-links in the bacterial cell wall, which results in cytolysis.
Principle Of The Test
CD Penicillin G Rapid Test is based on competitive lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The PEN-conjugate in the test zone will capture the immuno-gold (colloid gold-PEN antibody conjugate), when there is very little dissociative PEN in the samples. A visible red test band indicates a negative result when the control line (C zone) shows that the card is valid. The test band (T zone) will be not visible if PEN is present in concentration of 4 ppb and above which explains a positive result.
