LIVER-Screen® home self test kit

LIVER-Screen® is a rapid immunodiagnostics test for the immunological detection of increased transaminase (both ALT and AST) levels from a finger prick whole blood sample. The test consists on a plastic housing containing one stick having two distinct zones for transaminases detection (red colour when positive) and one control zone (blue colour). The Liver is an essential organ of the body having a critical role for health. It helps break down food, clean blood, produce proteins and store energy. In case of liver problems, a number of symptoms may appear including dark urine or light-coloured stool, no desire to eat, yellowish eyes or skin (jaundice), swelling in your belly, weakness or feeling very tired. There might be many reasons for a problem occurrence in liver such as hepatitis, side effects of certain medications, cirrhosis due to heavy drinking, overweight especially in case of diabetes or high blood pressure.

Method

In case of liver injury, transaminases (ALT and/or AST) are released by the liver in the blood stream. LIVER-Screen® rapid test detects these transaminases thanks to specific immunological reagents for each of both transaminases when their concentration is over 80 IU/L. Abnormal transaminases concentrations will be seen through one or two red lines appearance. LIVER-Screen® test should be considered as positive when, in addition to a blue line, one or two red lines, corresponding to each transaminase (ALT and AST), appear. Hepatic problems may indeed lead to an increased concentration of one transaminase only. Evaluation report performed on LIVER-Screen® test shows an overall agreement of 89.2% with the clinical chemistry reference method. Although this test is reliable, false positive or false negative results could be obtained.

How to use?

Carefully read the instructions before performing the test. The test is only interpretable if the instructions are carefully respected. Follow strictly the indicated time, whole blood and diluent quantities. The kit contains the material necessary to perform a test at home without additional materials. Simply take a blood sample with the easy to use finger lancet, put the sample collected with the pipette into the sample well of the device, by pressing on the pipette bulb. The result should be read within 10 minutes after adding the diluent. LIVER-Screen® test could be performed any time of the day.
