Xpect Giardia/Cryptosporidium uses antibody-coated color particles to bind with target antigen in the diluted sample. The color-antibody/antigen complex moves along the test membrane. Immobilised antibodies specific to target antigen capture the color-labelled antigen complex at the test region, causing a clearly visible line to appear. A blue line will appear at the giardia test position if giardia antigen is present. If cryptosporidium antigen is present, a red line will appear at the cryptosporidium test position. These lines will not appear in the absence of specific antigen. Immobilised, non-specific antibodies in the control region capture the color-labelled antibodies, whether antigen is present or not, resulting in a clearly visible control line.
Trust the entire family of Xpect rapid tests to deliver unparalleled diagnostic performance while offering ease-of-use, convenience and time savings. Each test is an immunochromatographic assay with a simple procedure that provides rapid, cost-effective detection to aid in the diagnosis of infections.
