Product Description

The Biopanda Influenza A+B Rapid Test qualitatively detects Influenza A+B viral antigens in nasal swab, throat swab, and nasal aspirate samples. This is a rapid test to differentiate in the diagnosis of Influenza A and B viral infections.

Test Attributes

  • Nasal/throat swab samples may be used for testing
  • Results available in only 15 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for assisting in the diagnosis and differentiation of influenza A+B infections

Test Procedure

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing.
  2. Place the Extraction Tube in the workstation. Holding the extraction reagent bottle vertically squeeze the bottle and let the solution drop into the extraction tube without touching the sides. Add 10 drops of solution (Approx. 400 µl) to the Extraction Tube. (See illustration 1).
  3. Place the swab specimen in the Extraction Tube. Rotate the swab for approximately 10 seconds while pressing the head against the inside of the tube to release any antigen present from the swab. (See illustration 2).
  4. Remove the swab while squeezing the swab head against the inside of the Extraction Tube as you remove it to expel as much liquid as possible (See illustration 3). Discard the swab in accordance with your biohazard waste disposal protocol.
  5. Place the extraction tube tip on top of the tube. (See illustration 4).
  6. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch using it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface.
  7. Add three drops of the solution (approx.120 µl) to the sample well and then start the timer. Read the result at 15 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.

Principle

The Biopanda Influenza A+B Rapid Test is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Influenza A and Influenza B nucleoproteins in nasal swab, throat swab or nasal aspirate samples. Antibodies specific to Influenza A and Influenza B nucleoproteins are separately coated on the test line regions of the test cassette. During testing, the extracted specimen reacts with the antibodies to Influenza A and/or Influenza B that are coated onto the membrane. The mixture migrates up the membrane to react with the antibodies to Influenza A and/or Influenza B generating one or two coloured lines in the test regions. The presence of this coloured line in either or both of the test line regions indicates a positive result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control region to show the test has been performed properly.
