Rapid Test Aripa
ARIPA's COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a side stream immunoassay based on the principle of the double antibody technique. The test is used to detect possible antigenes against COVID-19 / SARS-Cov-2 in aterio nasal, oropharyngeal (throat) or nasopharyngeal (posterior nasopharynx) swabs. The antigenes are usually detectable in the anterior nasal region, nasopharyngeal region, and pharynx during the acute phase of an infection. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigenes, but clinical relevance to the patient's history and other diagnostic information are required to determine the infection status. Positive results do not rule out a bacterial infection or cross-infection with other viruses. The pathogenes detected may not be the definitive cause of illness.
Negative results do not rule out an infection with SARS-CoV-2 and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions. Negative results should be considered in the context of a patient's recent exposures, history, and presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and confirmed with molecular testing if needed for patient management.
In this testing procedure, the COVID-19-N antibody is immobilized in the test line region of the device. After a nasopharyngeal swab specimen is placed in the testing well, it reacts with COVID-19-N antibody coated particles applied to the specimen pad. This mixture migrates chromatographically along the length of the test strip and interacts with the immobilized COVID-19 antibody.
If the specimen contains COVID-19 antigenes, a colored line appears in the test line area indicating a positive result.
If the specimen does not contain COVID-19 antigenes, no colored line appears in this area, indicating a negative result. As a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line area indicating that the correct volume of sample has been added and the membrane has been saturated.
