The test-it DIROFILARIA DOG is designed for the detection of Dirofilaria immitis antigens in canine whole blood, serum or plasma. Two antibodies in the test specifically bind with different epitopes of the antigens. After being absorbed into the cellulose pad, the antigens of Dirofilaria immitis move and bind with gold-colloid complex of anti-Dirofilaria immitis of the conjugate pad, forming antibody-antigene complex. This complex, then, forms antibody-antigene-antibody direct sandwich binding with the antibody of another monoclonal anti-Dirofilaria immitis in the nitrocellulose membrane. The test results are shown on Control line (C) and Test line (T) by means of the principles of immunochromatography.
rapid test for detection of canine heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis).
results between 5 ~ 10 minutes.
expensive equipment not required.
simple in use.
high-purity and high-quality materials of the diagnostic kit increases its sensitivity and specificity.
5 tests, including test device, diluent (buffer) and disposable dropper.
