TB Rapid Test Kit
We supply various TB rapid POCT test kits, which are used to detect total antibody, IgG and IgM antibodies specific to mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
We supply two Tuberculosis (TB) rapid test cassettes, which are lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay (CIA) kits used to detect TB total antibody and IgG/IgM antibodies respectively; and TB Dot filtration assay kit is an immuno dot filtration assay kit, used to detect IgG antibody specific to tuberculosis with high sensitivity.
Some of these TB POCT test kits are for the direct qualitative detection of tuberculosis antibodies in human serum, plasma and whole blood; and TB antigen urine test kit is used to detect TB lipoarabinomannan (LAM) antigen in human urine specimen; all these TB rapid test kits are intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of infectious diseases realted with mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, such as tubercolosis and renal tuberculosis.
TB Antibody POCT Kit
TB lateral flow rapid test kits and TB dot filtration test kits are widely used as an aid in the diagnosis of infection due to mycobacterium tuberculosis. Because all the needed reagents are included in these test kits, and they are easy to perform, and take as short as minutes to get the testing results instead of waiting for days for the testing result with other complicated testing methods, they are widely used as point-of-care testing kits as a convenient aid for the preliminary diagnosis of the tuberculosis infection.
How TB Rapid Test Helps
As present, Tuberculosis remains an important socio-economical and medical problem throughout the world. The early detection of tuberculosis disease will help to reduce and chance of further spread, and will help to the cure of the infected. In this way, the IVD Tuberculosis (TB) rapid test kits are contributing to the diagnosis, treatment and control of the spread of tuberculosis disease.
Lipoarabinomannan (LAM) is a mycobacterial cell wall component excreted in the urine. Detection of LAM has been evaluated as a diagnostic tool of tuberculosis infections. Studies have shown that LAM antigen can bedetected in urine during active TB disease.
Tuberculosis is a highly infectious disease caused by various strains of mycobacteria, usually Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB or TB). TB is transmitted almost exclusively by aerosol from the respiratory secretions of patients with active M. tuberculosis.
Most of the infected will keep asymptomatic, and about 10% progress to active disease. Tuberculosis mainly affects the lungs and about 80% of all cases of tuberculosis were limited to the lungs; but it can also affect any other organ including bone, brain and spine. Extra-pulmonary cases most happen to immunosuppressed patients. It was reported that half of the patients can be killed by the TB infection, if not treated with antibiotics. Morbidity of tuberculosis has been decreasing, but recently HIV–associated tuberculosis and multi-drug resistant tuberculosis are on the rise. Persons with silicosis have an approximately 30-fold greater risk for TB infection.
