Panbio™ Ag Rapid Test Device contains a membrane strip, which
is pre-coated with immobilized antibody on the test line and
mouse monoclonal anti-chicken IgY on the control line. Two types of conjugates
(human IgG specific to 2 Ag gold conjugate (binds to the nucleocapsid
protein) and chicken IgY gold conjugate) move upward on the membrane
chromatographically and react with antibody and pre-coated
mouse monoclonal anti-chicken IgY respectively.
For a positive result, human IgG specific to Ag gold conjugate and antibody will
form a test line in the result window. Neither the test line nor the control line are
visible in the result window prior to applying the patient specimen. A visible control
line is required to indicate a test result is valid.
