The Monkeypox Virus Antigen Rapid Test Kit is used for the qualitative detection of Monkeypox antigen in human whole blood, lesion exudate or scabsamples. It is intended for in vitro diagnostic use only.
When the specimen is processed and added to the sample well, monkeypox virus antigens in the sample interact with the monkeypox virus antibody-labeled conjugate forming antigen-antibody color particle complexes. The complexes migrate on the nitrocellulose membrane via capillary action until the test line, where they are captured by the mouse monoclonal anti-monkeypox virus antibodies. A colored test line is visible in the result window if monkeypox virus antigens are present in the specimen and the intensity depends upon the amount of monkeypox virus antigen. When the monkeypox virus antigens in the specimen does not exist or is below the detection limit, there is not a visible colored band in the test line of the device. This indicates a negative result. Neither the test line nor control line are visible in the result window prior to applying the specimen. A visible control line is required to indicate the result is valid.
