COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Kit

COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Kit

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow immunoassay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of IgG and IgM antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus in human serum, plasma or whole blood, intended to be used as a help in the diagnosis of this new coronavirus infection.

At present, three categories of testing methods are widely used in the diagnosis of COVID-19 infection. These methods are Chest CT Scan, Nucleic Acid detection, and blood antibodies detection.

In the background of pandemic of the new coronavirus infection, a rapid detection method is urgently needed to facilitate and help the diagnosis of the infection. And the rapid test kit of IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID-19 appears as a good choice. Comparing with the other two methods, the COVID-19 IgG/IgM antibody test kit have its own advantages as follow:

COVID-19 Cassette in Single Pouch
  • High Efficiency: with a lancet to get a drop of fingertip blood (about 10uL), and within as short as 10 minutes, the result can be read visually. The short waiting time makes COVID-19 rapid test kit an effective method for large-scale preliminary screening.
  • Convenience: as shown in the following picture, lancets, alcohol swab, blood collecting tube are supplied in the test kit. The test can be performed on the point of care; and if only the procedures can be followed exactly, professional background is not a must.
  • Lower cost: compared with CT scan and nucleic acid detection methods, the cost of the COVID-19 blood rapid test kit are significantly lower.
  • Lowest risk of infection: unlike the nucleic method, the sample collecting performers need not be exposed to the respiratory waste when collecting the blood specimen, which reduces the risk infection during specimens collection.

It has been proved that when the nucleic acid detection method and antibody detection method are used together, the diagnosis accuracy can be significantly improved.

What is COVID-19 Virus

Coronavirus (CoV) belongs to order Nidovirales, family Coronavirus, and is divided into ????? three genera. The ??? genera is only pathogenic to mammals, while the ? genus mainly causes infection in birds. CoV is mainly transmitted by direct contact with secretions, by aerosol or droplet, and there is also evidence that it can be transmitted by fecal-oral route.

COVID-19 antibody Test Cassette

So far, there have been seven types of human coronavirus (HCoV) that cause respiratory diseases in humans: HCoV-229E, HCoV-OC43, SARS-CoV, HCoV-NL63, HCoV-HKU1, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 is an important pathogen of human respiratory tract infection. Among them, the SARS-CoV-2 viral pneumonia cases were found, the clinical manifestation of systemic symptoms such as fever, fatigue, dry cough, dyspnea, etc., can rapidly develop severe pneumonia, respiratory failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock and multiple organ failure, severe alkali metabolic disorders, etc., and can even can threaten especially when the patient has other chronic disease(s).

CovID-19 virus has many antigens in the surface, among them, the S1 subunit contains the receptor-binding domain; and N protein is traditionally used a testing target in the detection of a specific virus. We have selectively chosen the S1 subunit and N-protein, and conjugated these proteins with colloidal gold which acts the colorizing particles.

About Fake COVID-19 Test Kit Found in Pakistan

Recently, we received a lot inquiries from abroad, especially from Pakistan, inquiring on the "COVID-19 IgG/IgM test kit under NOVAtest brand". During communication we received many pictures with the brand name of "NOVA Test", as shown below, which we are sure was NOT from Atlas Link, but made by some fraudulent supplier and distributor. Differences as follow:

  • Although seems similar to our standard 25-test box, this fake product is 30 tests/box, while we have NEVER made boxes of this specification;
  • From the beginning, we have made special boxes for this new Coronavirus antibody test kit, which is 20 Tests/Kit (undergone slight revisions, current the 4th rev.)
  • This product is made in China, and we haven't put "USA" on our box; and our strategic cooperater's name, i.e. ATLAS LINK INC USA, is not shown anywhere on the package. The fake product bears both, one on the box, the other on the leaflet of Instruction for Use.

According to the description of emails, this so said distributor from Lahore is providing the ISO 13485 certificate and our CE certificate of Atlas Link, when promoting the COVID-19 test kits with this package.

Fishy COVID19 Test Kit found in the market

This case, if true as current proof revealed, is not only a case of infringe on our right as the owner and user of the brand name "NOVA Test", but also a serious case which may affect the diagnosis results of a highly infectious disease, thus may compromise the effort on the controlling of the pandemic of a fatal disease. Also, because this distributor used our brand, but without putting its own company name on the package, this may implicate us if quality deficiency is found in these test kits. So, we are trying every means to submit this information to related authorities; and will be glad to supply further information when asked by any authority; and we also appeal to this no-so-honest supplier and distributor, who is supplying this package, to supply the product squarely in their own name, and your brand if any. Or if any question about the ownership of the brand name of NOVAtest®, we would like to talk face-to-face.
