【Test Purpose】
Canine heartworm (CHW), a parasitic nematode, can enter the heart and pulmonary artery
system and damage the blood vessels and tissues of the heart and lung, which greatly
affects the health of pets. Therefore, reliable and effective detection has a positive guiding
role in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
【Detection principle】
This product uses fluorescence immunochromatography to detect antigen in serum and
plasma.Basic principle: there are t and C lines on the nitrocellulose membrane, and the Tline
is coated with antibody A which can specifically recognize CHW antigen.The binding
pad is sprayed with another fluorescent nanomaterial labeled antibody B which can
specifically recognize CHW. The target detection object in the sample first combines with
the antibody B labeled with the nanomaterial to form a complex, and then upward
chromatography is carried out. The complex combines with T-line antibody A to form a
sandwich structure. When the excitation light is irradiated, the nano material emits a
fluorescence signal, The strength of the signal is positively correlated with the CHW
antigen concentration in the sample.
