Chembio DPP Zika IgM/IgG System, single-use rapid immunochromatographic test, kit/20T
Indicative Price : 77.06 USD

General description:
The Chembio DPP Zika IgM/IgG System is a single-use rapid immunochromatographic test for the detection and differentiation of Immunoglobulin M (IgM) and Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to Zika virus in fingerstick whole blood, EDTA venous whole blood, serum, or EDTA plasma samples. The Chembio DPP Zika IgM/IgG System is intended for use in clinical and point-of-care (POC) settings to aid in the diagnosis of infection with Zika virus (ZIKV) only in patients with clinical symptoms consistent with Zika; a recent history of travel to geographic regions during a period of active Zika virus transmission at the time of travel; and/or other epidemiologic criteria for which Zika virus testing may be indicated as part of public health response. This test is intended to provide a preliminary result. Results of this test cannot be used as the sole basis of patient management decisions and must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, epidemiological information, and another laboratory evidence. Results must be confirmed following the recommended national testing algorithm for ZIKA disease.

It is only for surveillance purpose, not for diagnostic purpose.

Technical specifications:
The Chembio DPP Zika IgM/IgG System includes the DPP Zika Test Device and the DPP Micro Reader. The device employs Chembio’s patented DPP (Dual Path Platform) technology and consists of a sample path that distributes sample onto two assay paths, which include antibody detection TEST (T) and CONTROL (C) areas in each readout window of the test cassette. The top reagent strip (T1) is for the detection of ZIKV IgM antibodies and the bottom reagent strip (T2) is for the detection of ZIKV IgG antibodies.
Sample type: Whole blood, venous blood, serum, plasma
Time to results: Read the results with the use of Micro Reader between 10-15mins after adding buffer.
Specificity: 85.80% for IgM
59.60% for IgG
Sensitivity: 81.40% for IgM
92.70% for IgG
