Hepatitis E virus IgM Test Cassette (Colloidal gold)

Short Description:

The Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a non-enveloped, single stranded RNA virus primarily transmitted through the fecal-oral route, blood transfusion and possibly maternal-fetal. Infection with HEV causes acute sporadic and epidemic viral Hepatitis and induces acute or subclinical liver diseases similar to Hepatitis A. While there are four major genotypes of HEV, there is only one serotype.

HEV infection in humans produces IgM, IgA and IgG antibodies. HEV-IgM and HEV- IgA positivity is a sign of acute or recent HEV infection. Whether anti-HEV-IgM and anti-HEV-IgA are positive for one or both, they are indicative of recent HEV infection. The presence of recent HEV infection, combined with liver function, can be used to determine whether the infection is acute or recent. The presence of HEV infection in the liver can be used to determine whether the disease is acute hepatitis E or recovery from acute hepatitis E.

Hepatitis E virus IgM Test Cassette is immunochromatography based. Nitrocellulose-based membrane pre-coated with Anti-Hepatitis E Virus antigen polyclonal antibodies (C line) and Anti-human IgM monoclonal antibodies (T line). And colloidal gold-labeled Hepatitis E Virus antigens were fixed on the conjugate pad.
When an appropriate amount of test specimen is added into sample well, the sample will move forward along the test card via capillary action. If the Hepatitis E Virus IgM antibodies level in the specimen is at or above the detection limit of the test, it will bind to the colloidal gold-labeled Hepatitis E Virus antigen. The antibody/antigen complex will be captured by the anti-human IgM antibody immobilized on the membrane, forming a red T line and indicating a positive result for the IgM antibody. The surplus colloidal gold-labeled Hepatitis E Virus antigen will bind to anti-Hepatitis E Virus polyclonal antibody and form a red C line. When Hepatitis E Virus IgM antibody presents in the specimen, the cassette will appear two visible line. If Hepatitis E Virus IgM antibodies are not present in the sample or below the LoD, the cassette will only appear C line.
