Chikungunya IgG/IgM Rapid Test

Short Description:

The Chikungunya IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG/IgM anti-chikungunya virus (CHIK in human serum or plasma. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with CHIK. Any reactive specimen with the Chikungunya IgG/IgM Rapid Test must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s) and clinical findings.

SUMMARY

Chikungunya is a rare viral infection transmitted by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito. It is characterized by a rash, fever, and severe joint pain (arthralgias) that usually lasts for three to seven days. The name is derived from the Makonde word meaning "that which bends up" in reference to the stooped posture developed as a result of the arthritic symptoms of the disease. It occurs during the rainy season in tropical areas of the world, primarily in Africa, South-East Asia, southern India and Pakistan1-2. The symptoms are most often clinically indistinguishable form those observed in dengue fever. Indeed, dual infection of dengue and chikungunya has been reported in India3. Unlike dengue, hemorrhagic manifestations are relatively rare and most often the disease is a self limiting febrile illness. Therefore it is very important to clinically distinguish dengue from CHIK infection. The Chikungunya IgG/IgM Rapid Test detects IgM anti-CHIK in patient serum or plasma within 10 minutes. The test can be performed by untrained or minimally skilled personnel, without cumbersome laboratory equipment.

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

IgG Positive:*Purplish red line appears in control line area (C), and purplish red line appears in test line area (G). The result is positive for Chikungunya specific-IgG and is probably indicative of secondary Chikungunya infection.

IgM Positive:*Purplish red line appears in control line area (C), and purplish red line appears in test line area (M). The result is positive for Chikungunya specific-IgM antibodies and is indicative of primary Chikungunya infection.

IgG and IgM Positive:* Purplish red line appears in the control line area (C), and two Purplish red lines should appear in the test line area G and M, and the color intensity of the lines need not match. Resulting the IgG and IgM antibodies were positive, indicating the presence of anti-Chik IgG and IgM in the specimens.

*NOTE:  Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region(s) (G and/or M) should be considered positive.

Negative: Purplish red line appears in the control line area (C). No lines appear in the test line area G and M.

nvalid: No line appears on control line (C). Insufficient sampling amount or improper sampling method may indeed lead to the fault of control line. Check the addition pattern and repeat the procedure with a new test card. If the problem persists, stop using the test suite immediately and contact your local distributor.
