To whom?

The Strep A Stick NO step Assay is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Streptococcus group A carbohydrate antigen directly from throat swab with no reagents manipulation.

The method employs polyclonal antibody-dye conjugate and polyclonal solid phase antibodies to selectively identify Strep A with a high degree of sensitivity. As the test sample flows through the absorbent device, the labelled antibody-dye conjugate binds to the Strep A carbohydrate antigen forming and antibody-antigen complex.

When this complex binds to the anti Strep A antibody, at the test region, it produces a purple colour band on the membrane. In the absence of Strep A there is no line in the test region. The reaction mixture continues to flow through the absorbent device. Unbound conjugate binds to the reagents in the control region producing a purple colour band, indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and that the membrane and the reagents are functioning correctly. The results are readily detected visually within 5 minutes from ample introduction.

Method

Srep A Stick NO Step Assay for rapid direct diagnoses of group A Streptococcal Tonsillitis & Pharyngitis.

Among the beta haemolytic streptococci causing infections in humans, the A, B, C and G groups figure most prominently. Group A Streptococci continue to be a focus of interest not only because of their causal role in acute streptococcal pharyngitis and other pyogenic infections but also because of their association with post streptococcal sequelae, specifically acute rheumatic fever and acute glomerulonephritis.

In order to properly treat the disease using antibiotic therapy, it is important to use an accurate diagnostic method to identify the pathologic agent. For the screening of Group A streptococcal infection several methods are currently used including susceptibility of the organism to a bacitracin disc placed on a sheep blood agar plate, latex agglutination and enzyme immunoassay.

How to use?

- Remove the device from the sealed pouch and place it on a flat surface;

- Collect a throat swab specimen with the provided sterile swab;

- Insert the throat swab into the intended slot on the button;

- Using the thumbs, press down the button until it stops;

- Read results after 5 minutes. A purple line should appear at the control region (C). In case of positive results, an additional purple line should appear at the region (T). In case of negative or unclear result read again after 5 more minutes. Do not interpret thereafter.
