Product Description

The Biopanda HCV Rapid test qualitatively detects for the presence of Hepatitis C Virus in human whole blood, serum or plasma samples. This test applies lateral flow immuno-chromatography and is for professional in vitro diagnostic use.

Test Attributes

  • Whole blood (WB), serum (S) or plasma (P) samples may be used for testing depending on the test kit ordered
  • Results available in only 20 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for assisting in the diagnosis of HCV infections

Test Procedure

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing.
  2. Open the foil wrapped pouch and remove the cassette. Place on a flat, clean surface. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed as soon as possible.
  3. Holding the pipette vertically drop 1 drop (approximately 25μl) of the plasma or serum sample into the sample well. Immediately add 2 drops of buffer (approximately 80 μl) to the sample well and start the timer.
  4. Wait for the coloured line(s) to appear. Results should be read at 10 minutes. 
  5. Results read after 20 minutes are considered invalid. Dispose of the cassette safely after testing.
HBsAb Rapid Test


The Biopanda HCV Rapid Test is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to HCV in samples. The membrane is pre-coated with recombinant HCV antigen on the test line region of the cassette. During testing, the specimen reacts with recombinant HCV antigen conjugate colloid gold. The mixture migrates laterally on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with recombinant HCV antigen on the membrane and generates a coloured line. Presence of this coloured line indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear at the control line region.

Performance Characteristics

  • Relative sensitivity: >99.9%
  • Relative specificity: 99.5%
  • Accuracy: 99.6%

Storage Conditions

Store the kit between 2-30°C and ensure the kits are not frozen or stored in direct sunlight. The test is valid until the expiration date printed on the foil wrapping.
