Introduction：One Step AFP Test is a rapid test for the detection of Alpha Fetoprotein in serum as an aid in the diagnosis of primary hepatocellular carcinomas， testicular teratocarcinomas and neural tube defects. The test is based on the principle of sandwich immunoassay for determination of AFP in serum. Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are employed to identity AFP specifically. This one step test is very sensitive and only takes about 10-20 minutes. The sensitivity of the test can reach to 25ng/mL.
Specimen collection:For serum， collect blood into a container without anticoagulant. Allow the blood to clot and separate the serum from the clot. Use the serum for testing. If the specimen cannot be tested on the day of collection, store the serum specimen in a refrigerator or freezer.Bring the specimens to room temperature before testing.Do not freeze and thaw the specimen repeatedly.
Test procedure1. When you are ready to begin testing, open the sealed pouch by tearing along the notch Remove the test from the pouch.2. Draw 2 or 3 drops sample into the pipette, and dispense it into the sample well on the cassette.3. Wait 10-20 minutes and read results. Do not read results after 30 minutes.
Invalid: A total absence of color in both regions is an indication of procedure error and/or that the test reagent has deteriorated.
Precaution:1. For in vitro diagnostic use only.2. Do not use test kit beyond the expiry date.3. The test device should not be reused.
