Alpha-Fetoprotein AFP Rapid Test cassette
over 99% accuracy
Rapid AFP Test Cassette is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. It is designed for the rapid
qualitative determination of AFP in serum or plasma specimens to aid in the diagnosis of Hepatocellular
Carcinoma or fetal open neural tube defects.
PRINCIPLE OF THE ASSAY
Rapid AFP test cassette is a sandwich immunoassay. When serum sample is added to sample pad,
it moves through the conjugate pad and mobilizes gold-mice monoclonal anti-AFP antibody conjugate.
that is coated on the conjugate pad. The mixture moves along the membrane by capillary action and
reacts with mice monoclonal anti-AFP antibody that is coated on the test region. If AFP is present, the
result is the formation of a colored band in the test region. The gold conjugate will continue to migrate
until is captured in the control region by immobilized goat anti-mouse IgG antibody and aggregating
in a red line, which indicates the validity of the test.
