The Rapid Response Strep A Rapid Test Strip from BTNX is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay intended for the detection of Strep Throat from a throat swab. In this test, antibody specific to Strep A carbohydrate antigen is coated on the test line region of the test strip. During testing, the extracted throat swab specimen reacts with an antibody to Strep A that is coated onto particles. The mixture migrates up the membrane to react with the antibody to Strep A on the membrane and generate a red line in the test region of the test strip. A positive result is reflected by the presence of this red line in the test region, while the absense of the red line reflects a negative result. To serve as a control, a red line will always appear in the control region, assuming that the test has been administered and performed properly. If a red control line does not appear the the testing results are deamed as invalid.
Strep Throat at a Glance
Streptococcus pyogenes is a non-motile gram-positive cocci, which contains the Lancefield group A antigen that can cause serious infections such as pharyngitis, respiratory infection, impetigo, endocarditis, meningitis, puerperal sepsis, and arthritis. If left untreated, these infections can lead to serious complications, such as rheumatic fever and peritonsillar abscess. Traditional identification procedures for Group A Streptococci involve the isolation and identification of viable organisms using techniques that require 24 to 48 hours or longer.
