TEST PRINCIPLE :
The OnSite Leishmania Ab Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay. The test strip consists of: 1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing protein A conjugated with colloidal gold (Protein A conjugates), 2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing a test band (T band) and a control band (C band). The T band is pre-coated with a proprietary recombinant L. donovani antigen 39, and the C band is pre-coated with chicken anti-protein A Ab.
When an adequate volume of test specimen is dispensed into the sample pad of the strip, the specimen migrates by capillary action across the strip. Anti- L. donovani Ab if present in the specimen will bind to the Protein A conjugates. The immunocomplex is then captured on the membrane by the pre-coated antigen, forming a burgundy colored T band, indicating a L. donovani Ab positive test result.
Absence of the T band suggests a negative result. The test contains an internal control (C band) which should exhibit a burgundy colored band of the immunocomplex of anti-protein A – Protein A conjugates regardless of the presence of any antibodies to L. donovani antigen. Otherwise, the test result is invalid and the specimen must be retested with another device
