Liver screen home test kit

Liver disease can be inherited (genetic) or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage.


Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition.


Parasites and viruses can infect the liver, causing inflammation that reduces liver function. The viruses that cause liver damage can be spread through blood or semen, contaminated food or water, or close contact with a person who is infected. The most common types of liver infection are hepatitis viruses, including: Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Hepatitis C


Worried on liver or hepatitis problems?  You can also test yourself for other diseases including immunological detection of increased transaminaseboth (ALT and AST)  levels with our STI self test kits for both women and men.



Liver screen self test 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.

Additional Information

Additional Information

To whom?

 

Liver self test is for both men and women who are experiencing signs and symptoms like:

- Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice);

- Abdominal pain and swelling - Swelling in the legs and ankles;

- Itchy skin; Dark urine colour;

- Pale stool color, or bloody or tar-colored stool;

- Chronic fatigue - Nausea or vomiting - Loss of appetite - Tendency to bruise easily.

Method

 

In case of liver injury, transaminases (ALT and/or AST) are released by the liver in the blood stream. LIVER self 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 self 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 slef 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 self test could be performed any time of the day.
