CEA Rapid Test Kits
CEA rapid test strip and cassette kits are intended to be used as an aid in the medical diagnosis of various cancers such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and pancreas cancer.
CEA Rapid Test Strip & Cassette
CEA rapid test kits, also referred to as one step CEA tests, are a rapid direct binding immunoassay medical testing kits for the qualitative detection of tumor marker Carcinoma Embryonic Antigen (CEA) in human serum specimens. CEA rapid test kits are used as an aid in the medical diagnosis of cancers such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and pancreas cancer.
Why CEA Test Matters
Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is normally produced during the development of a fetus. The production of CEA will stop before deliver of the baby, and usually it cannot be found in the blood of an adult without cancers. When a cancer develops in one's body, CEA protein will emerge again in his blood. Because of the correlation between cancers and the CEA level, CEA protein is regarded as one of the tumor marker substances, and are used as the subject of cancer screening test. CEA tumor marker rapid test kits measure the concentration of the CEA protein in human serum and plasma specimens, so they are used as CEA medical diagnostic devices in the diagnosis of certain kinds of cancers, especially large colon cancer and rectal cancer.
NOVAtest ® CEA Rapid Test
In our NOVAtest ® CEA rapid test strip and Cassette, monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are employed to identify carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) specifically. Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd would like to offer quality IVD CEA test cassettes and strips at competitive prices.
The normal range for CEA in an adult non-smoker is less than 3 ng/ml, and for smokers less than 5.0 ng/ml. Once cancer is identified, before therapy, CEA levels can be higher than 20 ng/ml, which is associated with cancer which maybe have already spread (metastatic disease). Benign disease does not usually cause an increase above 10 ng/ml.
The sensitivity of NOVAtest CEA rapid testing kits is made at 5.0 ng/ml, which means if this one-step testing kit indicate a positive result, the chance is that testee's cancer CEA level is not normal, and certain cancer, such as colon cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer, may have spread.
About Tumor Marker CEA
Tumor marker CEA, stands for carcinoembryonic antigen, which is a protein highly correlated with some cancers. A high CEA level in one's blood sends a signal of certain cancers, which makes CEA protein concentration a well-known tumor marker, and is one of several most important testing objects in the cancer medical diagnostic tests.
Cancers such as colon cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer can make the level of this protein increase. Because CEA can be produce by a number of cancers, the elevation of CEA concentration in the bloodstream will prompt doctors to evaluate further for the real source. During the treatment process of a cancer, the CEA levels can be monitored to determine a recurrence before other tests would show positive.
