The Strep B Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative, presumptive detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) antigens in specimens taken from vaginal or rectal swaps of pregnant women, or general swabs from newborn. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of Strep B infection.
Group B Streptococci (GBS) or Streptococcus agalactiae are among the most frequent causes of life-threatening infectious in neonates. Between 5% and 30% of all pregnant women are colonized with GBS.1Several recent studies have shown that the intrapartum treatment of GBS-colonized women significantly reduces the incidence of GBS-caused sepsis.2-4 The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine examination for Group B streptococcus between the 35th and the 37th week of pregnancy. A CDC study has shown that routine examinations is 50% more effective than the use of antibiotics for pregnant women with clinical risk factors.
Standard culture methods require 24 to 48 hours, and the results may not be available soon enough for efficient treatment. Thus, methods utilizing more rapid screening techniques are required.
The Strep B Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) detects Group B Streptococcus antigens through visual interpretation of color development on the internal strip. Anti-Strep B antibodies are immobilized on the test region of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with polyclonal anti-Strep B antibodies conjugated to colored particles and precoated onto the sample pad of the test. The mixture then migrates through the membrane by capillary action, and interacts with reagents on the membrane. If there is sufficient Strep B antigen in the specimen, a colored band will form at the test region of the membrane. The presence of this colored band indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
Allow the test, reagents, swab specimen, and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
Caution: The above interpreting time is based on room temperature range of 15-30℃. If your room temperature is significantly lower than 15℃, then the interpreting time should be properly increased to 30 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Two red lines are visible in the result window. The intensity of the test line may be
weaker or darker than that of the control line. This still means a positive result.
The control line appears in the result window, but the test line is not visible.
If the control line does not appear in the result window, the test results are INVALID regardless of the presence or absence of the line in the test region.
The Strep B Rapid Test Cassette (Swab) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from patients of STD clinics. Culture is used as the reference method for the Strep B Rapid Test Cassette (Swab). Specimens were considered positive if culture indicated a positive result. Specimens were considered negative if culture indicated a negative result.
|Strep B Rapid Test Cassette||Results||Positive||Negative|
Relative Sensitivity: 95.2% (95%CI:*89.6%-98.2%)
Relative Specificity: 97.8% (95%CI:*95.8%-99.0%)
Overall accuracy: 97.2% (95%CI:*95.3%-98.4%) *Confidence Intervals
NOTE: Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for the control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new device. If problem persists, please contact your local distributor.
