AFP Serum Rapid Test description:

"Export Use Only"
Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics Inc offers an AFP Serum RapiDip Insta Test (5 mm strip) which is a rapid, direct binding test for the detection of Alpha Fetoprotein in serum. The AFP Rapid Test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of primary hepatocellular carcinomas, testicular teratocarcinomas, and neural tube defects.

3. Centrifuge

AFP Serum RapiDip Insta Test Background Information:
AFP was first found in the sera of human. AFP is a single-chain protein showing close sequence homology with serum albumin. It is suggested to play a role in transporting polyunsaturated fatty acids to developing and malignant cells because of its high affinity to these substances. Studies also indicate that AFP may function as an important in vivo immunoregulator that acts through T cells. Synthesis of AFP in the human yolk sac ceases between the tenth and twelfth week of gestation. The major portion of the protein is then produced by fetal hepatocytes. The upper limit for normal sera is about 9 ng/ml, while levels above 175 ng/ml are highly suspicious of hepatocellular carcinoma. While 82% of patients with clinically verified tumors have higher amounts, 98% of patients with metastatic liver disease have below 175 ng/ml. It has been shown that the elevation of serum AFP in benign hepatic diseases is usually transient. Many studies confirm the presence of AFP in the early stages of fetal open neural tube defect (NTD). In these cases, AFP is thought to leak directly into the amniotic fluid and subsequently enter maternal circulation, thus producing abnormally elevated levels of maternal serum AFP.

AFP Serum RapiDip Insta Test Principle:
The test is based on the principle of sandwich immunoassay. Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are employed to identity AFP specifically. This test takes only 10-20 minutes to detected 25 ng/mL AFP in serum. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
