Artron Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody Test is an antibody-capture immunochromatographic assay, detecting the presence of HCV antibodies in either serum or plasma . Specific HCV antigens are 1) conjugated with colloidal gold and deposited on the conjugate pad, and 2) immobilized on the test line of the nitrocellulose membrane. When a serum or plasma sample is added, it rehydrates the gold-antigen conjugate and the HCV antibodies, if present in the sample, interacts with the gold conjugated antigen. The antigen-antibody-gold complex will migrate towards the test window until the test region (T) where they are captured by the immobilized antigens, forming a visible pink line (test line), indicating a positive result). If HCV antibodies are absent in the sample, no pink line will appear in the test region.
Hepatitis C Virus Antibody Test
Our HCV Antibody Test is a rapid and reliable solution for identifying Hepatitis C Virus antibodies in serum or plasma samples. This innovative assay utilizes specific HCV antigens conjugated with colloidal gold and immobilized on the test line of the nitrocellulose membrane. When a serum or plasma sample is introduced, it triggers the interaction between HCV antibodies and the gold-conjugated antigen. A visible pink line (test line) appears in the test region (T) for a positive result. If HCV antibodies are absent, no pink line will appear.
