This product is an immunoassay strip that uses highly sensitive monoclonal agents antibodies to detect the nucleocapsid protein (N protein) in SARS-CoV-2 viral particles. When a sample is added to the loading pad on a test card, it will migrate through the strip under capillary effect. If the N protein is present in the sample, it will bind with N protein antibody coated on the red colloidal gold particles on the strip to form a group of red complexes. These complexes are further accumulated by another N protein antibody coated on the test line (T line), resulting in a red band on the T line. As a control, a red band will always appear on the control line (C line), indicating that the correct volume of sample has been added to the test card.
