The CDV Antibody Rapid Test Device is a lateral flow immunochromatographic assay for semi-quantitative detection of Canine Distemper Virus antibodies in canine serum/plasma.
The CDV Antibody Rapid Test Device (Serum/Plasma) is based on the sandwich lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The test device has a testing window containing a test zone (T) and Control (C) zone. . When the sample is added to the sample well, the liquid will laterally flow through the surface of the test strip and react with the pre-coated CDV antigens. If there are anti-CDV antibodies in the specimen, a visible T line will appear. The C line should always appear after a sample is applied, which indicates a valid result.
If CDV antigens are present, a coloured line will appear in the test line region indicating a positive result. If the specimen does not contain CDV antigens, a colored line will not appear in the test line region indicating a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added correctly.
