CPV Ag Rapid Test

CPV Ag Rapid Test 
The Rapid CPV Ag Test Kit is a chromatographic immunoassay for the
qualitative detection of Canine Parvovirus antigen in canine feces.
The Rapid Canine Parvovirus Ag Test Kit has a letter of “T” and “C” as test line
and control line on the surface of the device. Both the test line and control line in result
window are not visible before applying any samples. The control line is used for
procedural control. Control line should be always appearing if the test procedure is
performed properly and the test reagents of control line are working. A purple test line will
be visible in the result window if there is enough Parvovirus antigen in the specimen.
The specially selector Canine Parvovirus antibodies are used in test band as both
capture and detector materials. These enable the Rapid CPV Ag Test Kit to identify
Canine Parvovirus antigen in canine feces with a high degree of accuracy.
Materials provided
  1. Rapid CPV Ag Test Kits
  2. Specimen tubes containing assay diluent buffer
  3. Sample collection swabs
  4. Disposable droppers
  5. Instruction for use
  1. For veterinary diagnostic use only.
  2. For best results, strict adherence to there instructions is required.
  3. All specimens should be handled as being potentially infectious.
  4. Do not open or remove test kit from their individually sealed immediately before their use.
  5. Do not use the test kit if the pouch is damage or the seal is broken.
  6. Do not reuse test kit
  7. All reagents must be at room temperature before running the assay
  8. Do not use reagents beyond the stated expiration date marked on the label.
  9. The components in this kit have been quality control tested as standard batch unit. Do not mix components from different lot numbers.
Storage and Stability
The kit can be stored at room temperature (2~30)or refrigerated. The test kit is stable through the expiration date marked on the package label. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not store the test kit direct sunlight.
Specimen Collection and Preparation
      1) The samples from canine feces should be used for this test.
      2) The specimens should be tested immediately as soon as collect the samples.
  1. Collect the samples from canine feces using the swab.
  2. Insert the swab into the specimen tube containing 1ml of assay diluent.
  3. Mix the swab samples with the assay diluent to extract well.
  4. Remove the test device from the foil pouches, and places it on a flat and dry surface.
  5. Using the disposable dropper provided, take the samples from extracted and mixed specimens in the tube.
  6. Add four (4) drop into the sample hole using the disposable dropper. The mixed assay diluent should be added exactly, slowly drop by drop.
  7. As the test beings to work, you will see purple color move across the result window in the center of the test device. If the migration has not appeared after 1 min, add one more drop of the mixed assay diluent to the sample well.
  8. For best result, test 5 diarrhea feces in the farm.
  9. Interpret test results at 5~10 min. Do not decide after 10 min.
A color band will appear in the upper section of the result window to show that the test is working properly. This band is the control band. The lower section of the result window indicates the test results. If another color band appears in the lower section of the result window. This band is the test band.
1) Negative result
The presence of only one band within the result window indicates a negative result.
2) Positive result
The presence of two colors bands (“T” and “C”) within the result window, no matter which band appears first indicates a positive result.
3) Invalid result
If the purple color band is not visible within the result window after performing the test, the result is considered invalid. The directions may not have been followed correctly or the test may have deteriorated. It is recommended that the specimen be re-tested.
Although the Rapid Canine Parvovirus Ag Test kit is very accurate in detecting Canine Parvovirus antigen, a low incidence of false results can occur. Other clinically available tests are required if questionable results are obtained. As with all diagnostic tests, a definitive clinical diagnosis should not be based on the results of a single test, but should only be made by the veterinarian after all clinical and laboratory findings have been evaluated.
