Coronavirus, as the broad family of viruses, is a single strand plus RNA virus with an envelope. The virus is known to cause major diseases such as cold, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The core protein of SARS-CoV-2 is N protein (Nucleocapsid), which is a protein component inside the virus. It is relatively conservative among β-coronaviruses and is commonly used as a diagnostic tool for coronavirus. As the key receptor for SARS-CoV-2 to enter cells, ACE2 is significant for the study of viral infection mechanisms.
SARS-COV2 Antigen Rapid Test Kit can detect the virus from the first phase of infect (2-3 days before potential symptom onset) to the last phase of infection (7-10 days after potential symptom onset).
The test card contains a gold-labeled novel coronavirus N protein monoclonal antibody pre-coated on the binding pad and a paired novel coronavirus N protein monoclonal antibodies fixed in the test line (T) and corresponding antibodies in the quality control line (C).
The product includes cards, instruction manual, swabs and sample treatment solution. Each reagent kit contains 1 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigen test card and 1 bag of desiccant.
Disposable sterile swab information： Nasal Swab or Nasopharyngeal Swab could be provided based on customer’s requirement.
