RAPITEST™ SYPHILIS Dipstick Test is a qualitative, two site sandwich assay for the detection of ( IgG and IgM ) antibodies to specific Treponema pallidum(Syphilis) in human serum /plasma. Recombinant Syphilis antigens are employed to identify Syphilis antibodies specifically. This test is very sensitive and rapid. Results are interpreted in less than 20 minutes. Test results are read visually without any instruments.
RAPITEST™ Syphilis Lateral Flow Dipstick Test is a membrane based test, which is coated with recombinant antigen specific to Treponema pallidum antibodies at test region “T”. The control Region “C” is coated with goat anti Rabbit IgG. When the test sample moves further on the membrane assembly, the gold conjugated syphilis antigen complexes with the Treponema pallidum antibodies in the serum sample. This complex moves further on the membrane and will be trapped by the Treponema pallidum antigen coated on the test region “T”, resulting in the formation of pink / purple colour line on the test region which confirms the presence of Treponema pallidum (syphilis) antibodies in the serum. Absence of this band on the test region indicates no reaction. The unreacted conjugate moves further on the membrane, and ends up informing coloured control line. The control line serves to validate the test result. No band at region “C” indicates that the test is “INVALID”.
