CARESTART COVID-19 Antigen Test Kit
Coronavirus IGG/IGM Rapid Test
The CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Test is a lateral flow immunochromatographic assay for the detection of extracted nucleocapsid protein antigens specific to SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal swab specimens directly collected from symptomatic individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.
As an intended point-of-care (POC) designated test performed by medical professionals with a 10 minutes processing time, CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Test helps provide critical answers about active infections to patients and healthcare workers alike.

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device is an in vitro immunoassay for the direct and qualitative detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM and anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG in human whole blood, serum, or plasma. The test is for Point Of Care professional use only.
The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device detects anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM antibody through visual interpretation of color development. Anti-human IgG and anti-human IgM are used to detect specific antibodies in the human whole blood, serum, or plasma specimen. When specimen is added to the sample well, specific IgM and/or IgG antibodies, if present, will bind to the SARS-CoV-2 antigens conjugated to colored particles on the conjugate pad.
As the specimen migrates along the strip by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane, the complex will be captured by anti-human IgM and/or anti-human IgG antibodies immobilized on the test region(s). Excess colored particle are captured at the internal control region. The presence of a red band(s) on the test region(s) indicates a positive result for the particular IgG and/or IgM antibodies, while its absence indicates a negative result. A red band at the control region (C) serves as a procedural control, indicating that membrane wicking is working.
