Artron Human Cardiac Fatty Acid-Binding Protein (FABP) Test

Catalog Number: A06-01-322 (cassette)


Artron One-Step Human Cardiac Fatty Acid-Binding Protein (FABP) Test is a rapid and convenient immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of human cardiac FABP in serum, plasma or whole samples at or above the cutoff level of 10 ng/ml. It is intended for professional use as an aid in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. This assay provides only a preliminary result. Clinical expertise and professional judgment should be sought to further evaluate the result of the test.


Artron One-Step FABP Test is an antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay, detecting the presence of human cardiac FABP in human serum or plasma samples. Monoclonal antibodies specifically against FABP are 1) conjugated with colloidal gold and deposited on the conjugate pad and 2) immobilized on the test line of the nitrocellulose membrane. When the serum or plasma sample is added the gold-antibody conjugate is rehydrated and the FABP, if any in samples, interacts with the gold conjugated antibodies. The antigen-antibody-gold complex will migrate towards the test window until the Test Zone (T) where it will be captured by immobilized antibodies, forming a visible pink line (Test band), indicating a positive result. If FABP is absent in the sample, no pink line will appear in the Test Zone (T), indicating a negative result.
To serve as an internal process control, a control line should always appear at the Control Zone (C) after the test is completed. Absence of a pink control line in the Control Zone is an indication of an invalid result.


Time to Results:
10 min (Strong positive specimens may produce positive results in as little time as 1 minute. Confirm negatives in 10-20 minutes.)
Analytical Sensitivity:
10 ng/mL
Analytical Specificity:
No cross reactions were observed from all tested specimens
No interference from common biological and chemical analytes
Diagnostic Sensitivity:
Diagnostic Specificity:
The precision was determined by replicate assays of both positive and negative samples with devices from three different production lots. The resultant data indicated no appreciable between lot variation when testing both positive and negative samples across three different lots.
Storage condition:
Store at 2-30°C, avoid direct sunlight and freezing.
Shelf life:
18 months
