The product is intended for the qualitative detection of antigen against SARS-CoV-2 in clinical samples (nasal swab). The test has two central advantages: the swab only needs to be inserted into the front area of the nasal cavity and does not require a throat smear – which is why the test can be carried out by everyone conveniently. The current test card is based on the specific antibody-antigen reaction and immunoanalysis technology.

The results of Lepu Medical’s SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test are officially recognized in 27 EU Countries: Official recommendation of the EU Commission 

During testing, the N protein in the sample combines with the colloidal gold labelled SARS-CoV-2 N protein monoclonal antibody which is pre-coated on the combination pad. The conjugates migrate upward under capillary effect, and subsequently captured by the N protein monoclonal antibody immobilized in the Test area (T). The higher the contents of N protein in the sample, the more the conjugates captures and the darker the colour in the test area is. If there is no virus in the sample or the virus content is lower than the detection limit, then there is no colour demonstrated in the test area (T). Regardless of the presence or absence of the virus in the sample, a purple stripe will appear in the quality control area (C). The purple stripe in the quality control area (C) is a criterion for the judgment of whether or not there is enough sample and whether or not the chromatography procedure is normal.
