Syphilis Rapid Test Background Information
Syphilis is a disease caused by Spirochete bacterium called Treponema pallidum (TP). If untreated, the organisms move throughout the body and can cause damage to many organs, making syphilis a life-threatening disease if not treated early enough. People who have been infected with syphilis experience different symptoms during the 3 stages of the disease. Early, which is defined by the presence of the chancre at the site of inoculation syphilis may be further divided into primary, secondary, and early latent syphilis; late syphilis includes late latent and the various forms of tertiary syphilis. The serological response to syphilis involves production of antibodies to a wide range of antigens, including non-specific antibodies and specific anti-TP antibodies. The first detectable response to infection is the production of specific antitreponemal IgM, which can be detected within 4 to7 days after the chancre appears and until the end of the second week of infection; antitreponemal IgG appears at about four weeks later. By the time that symptoms develop, most patients have detectable IgG and IgM.
Syphilis Rapid Test Principle
This Syphilis anti-TP Rapid Test employs chromatographic lateral flow test device in a cassette format. Colloidal gold conjugated recombinant antigens (Au-Ag) corresponding to TP antigens (P47, P45, P17, P15) are dry immobilized at the end of nitrocellulose membrane strip. TP antigens are bond at the Test Zone (T) and rabbit anti-TP antibodies are bond at the Control Zone (C). When the sample is added, it migrates by capillary diffusion rehydrating the gold conjugate. If present in sample, TP antibodies (anti-TP) will bind with the gold conjugated antigens forming particles. These particles will continue to migrate along the strip until the Test Zone (T) where they are captured by TP antigens generating a visible red line. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
