MVD Test Kit

Early detection and confirmation of Marburg virus disease is critical for the control of epidemic of this disease. For the patients, early supportive care, such as intravenous fluids, treatment of specific symptoms, can effectively improve the survival rate. On the other hand, it is difficult to clinically distinguish MVD from other infectious diseases such as malaria, typhoid fever, meningitis, Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic fevers.

Many clinical detection methods have been developed to help the diagnosis of MVD. WHO suggested several clinical testing method to confirm or help to diagnosis Marburg virus infection, among which include Marburg antigen serum detection assay method. This NOVA Test ® Marburg virus antigen test kit is a one-step MVD rapid test kit, which is based on immuno antibody sandwich method to immunologically, quickly detect Marburg Virus antigen in human serum, plasma and whole blood specimens, and is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of Marburg virus disease.

Rapid testing result

After adding specimen to the sample well of the cassette, the result can be obtained within 15 minutes; but for strong positive specimen, the result can develop within minutes. During the whole process, no other reagent is needed. Which makes this Marburg virus rapid test kit suitable for near-patient or point-of-care settings, under emergent situation or in the field locations where is far away from hospitals or clinical laboratories.

This Marburg antigen test kit is for professional use; and for in-vitro diagnostic use only. During the testing process, the Instructions for Use (IFU) should be followed exactly in order to avoid any false testing result.

Marburg virus disease

Marburg virus disease (MVD), also known as Marburg hemorrhagic fever, is a severe illness in humans, with a high fatal rate up to 88% in some outbreaks. The Marburg virus can be transmitted to human from fruit bats and their inhabited caves, and can spread among humans by various physical contacts. The blood, secretions, and other bodily fluids of the Marburg patients are highly contagious; contacting with them and even the body of the patients may cause infections. So when testing the specimens from suspected Marburg virus disease, the specimen, the testing materials and waste should be treated as if they are contagious.
