HIV Rapid test

Published: Nov 23, 2011 by Filed under: Rapid test kits



HIV Rapid tests are qualitative immunoassays intended for use as a point-of-care test to aid in the diagnosis of HIV infection. This HIV Rapid Test is used in conjunction with the clinical status, history, and risk factors of the person being tested.

 HIV Rapid Test.  This one-step Anti HIV 1, 2 RapidCard™ is a rapid, binding-screening test for the presence of antibodies to HIV 1 and HIV 2 viruses.  It is used as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV infection.  This HIV Rapid Test is based on the principle of inter-second antibody immunoassay for determination of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 in wholeblood/serum/plasma.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HIV 1 and HIV 2 specifically.  This one step test is very sensitive and only takes 20 minutes for the result to be read. Test results are read visually without any instrument.


It’s easy to use.  When you are ready to begin testing, open the sealed pouch of HIV Rapid Test by tearing along the notch. Using the plastic pipette provided, transfer 1 drop of whole blood/serum/plasma to the sample well of the test device. Add 3 drops of diluents provided onto the sample well. Wait for 20 minutes and read the results.


Interpretation is simple:  if only one colored band appears on the control (C) region and there is no apparent band on the test (T) region, the result is negative.  If a pink-colored band appears on control (C) and test (T) regions, the result is positive.  If there is no line on control (C) region, the result is considered invalid.


As with all diagnostic tests, all results must be considered with other clinical information available to the physician.  A definite clinical diagnosis should only be made by the physician after all clinical and laboratory findings have been evaluated.


The HIV Rapid Test should be used for the detection of antibodies to HIV in whole blood/serum/plasma specimen.


The HIV Rapid Test Device will only indicate the presence of antibodies to HIV in the specimen and should not be used as the sole criteria for the diagnosis of HIV-1 and/or -2 infections.


If the test result is negative and clinical symptoms persist, additional follow-up tests using other clinical methods are recommended. A negative result at any time does not preclude the possibility of HIV -1 and/or -2 infections.

Diagnostic automation Cortez Diagnostics Inc. offers Home Pregnancy Test (HPT), OneStep hCG Midstream Urine RapiCard Pregnancy Test

Published: Sep 13, 2011 by Filed under: Pregnancy test

This Pregnancy Test kit is for the determination of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in urine specimens. There is an appearance of hCG in urine soon after conception and its subsequent rapid rise in concentration during early gestational growth.  Pregnancy test is used to obtain a visual, qualitative result for the early detection of pregnancy.

We offer pregnancy tests with two different sensitivities 25mIU/mL and 10mIU/mL:

 The pregnancy tests on the market today range widely in their sensitivity in picking up the pregnancy hormone, hCG.  As a general rule, hCG levels in pregnant women are between 5 – 50mIU a week before your period is due. The hCG levels in your system should double every two to three days.

 The pregnancy test with 10mIU/mL sensitivity – Early Pregnancy test allows one to know earlier if their attempts to conceive were successful and to get medical care as soon as possible. There is a down side to extra sensitive pregnancy tests though. Some non-pregnant women may have low levels of hCG and when they use an extra sensitive pregnancy test the result might show false positive.


Warnings: Unites States Surgeon General

Pregnant women should not drink alcohol, may cause birth defect.

Malaria Rapid test kits

Published: Nov 14, 2011 by Filed under: Rapid test kits Malaria Rapid test

Malaria Rapid test


Malaria is a serious parasitic disease characterized by fever, chills,
and anemia and is caused by a parasite that is transmitted from one human to
another through the bite of infected Anopheles mosquitoes. There are four kinds
of malaria that can infect humans: Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, and
P. malariae. In humans, the parasites (called sporozoites) migrate to the liver
where they mature and release another form, the merozoites. The disease now
occurs in more than 90 countries worldwide, and it is estimated that there are
over 500 million clinical cases and 2.7 million malaria-caused deaths per year.

At present, malaria is diagnosed by looking for the parasites in a drop
of blood. Blood will be put onto a microscope slide and stained so that the
parasites will be visible under a microscope.

We offer two formats of the test.  One test, the Malaria (Pan-LDH) W/B RapiCard™
InstaTest Cat# 172120-25, can detect all four species of malaria Plasmodium
falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale, and Plasmodium malariae. This pan-LDH
Antigen Test contains a membrane strip, which is pre-coated with anti-pan LDH
monoclonal antibodies on the test line region of the strip.  When a Whole Blood specimen is applied at one
end of the membrane and following the application of the assay buffer, it
reacts with the colloidal gold-anti-pan LDH antibody that has already been
applied to the specimen pad. The mixture then migrates chromate-graphically
towards the other end of the membrane and reacts with the monoclonal antibodies
previously placed on the test line region. If the blood contains one or more of
the four Malaria species, a colored line will appear in the test line region,
showing a positive result.  The absence
of the colored line in the test region indicates a negative result; therefore
the whole blood does not contain detectable levels of any of the Malaria


The other format, Malaria (Pf/Vivax) W/B RapiCard™
InstaTest Cat# 172110-25, will  differentiate between the two species:  Plasmodium falciparum anf Plasmodium Viavax.  This Malaria pf (HRP II) / pv (LDH) Antigen 172110-25
Test contains a membrane strip, which is pre-coated with two monoclonal
antibodies as two separate lines across a test strip.  One monoclonal antibody (test line 1) is
specific to the P. falciparum histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2) and another
monoclonal antibody (test line 2) is specific to the lactate dehydrogenase of
the P. vivax species (pvLDH). A Conjugate pad is dispensed with monoclonal
antibodies conjugated to colloidal gold, which are specific to P. falciparum
histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2) and specific to the lactate dehydrogenase
of P. vivax. Therefore, the antigen of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium
vivax can be differentially detected.

New Drug Test Methylphenidate Drug of Abuse Test

Published: Sep 13, 2011 by Filed under: Drug tests

Methylphenidate is a psycho stimulant drug for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, and narcolepsy. Methylphenidate increases dopamine levels. The abuse potential is increased when methylphenidate is crushed and snorted or when it is injected producing effects almost identical to cocaine. Cocaine-like effects can also occur with very large doses taken orally. Methylphenidate has a high potential for drug dependence and addictive abuse due to its similar pharmacological relationship to cocaine and amphetamines. Internationally, methylphenidate is a Schedule II drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances. In the United States, methylphenidate is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance, the designation used for substances that have a recognized medical value but present a high likelihood for abuse because of their addictive potential.


Methylphenidate is most commonly known by the Novartis trademark name Ritalin, which is an instant-release racemic mixture. There are also a variety of formulations and generic brand in existence. It may also be prescribed for off-label use in treatment-resistant cases of lethargy, depression, neutral insult, obesity, and rarely in other psychiatric disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Methylphenidate (MPD) Drug Test is an immunochromatography-based one step in vitro test. It is designed for qualitative determination of methylphenidate in human urine specimens at cut-off level of 300 ng/ml. This assay has not been evaluated in the point of care location and is for use by Healthcare Professionals only. This drug test is available in cassette and strip test format.

Methylphenidate Drug test provides only a preliminary analytical drug test result.  A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) has been established as the preferred confirmatory method by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.

The Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics,Inc. offer the following Drug tests in Strip and Cassette format. The Drug tests can be customized according to your needs for sensitivities and combination (up to 10) of different drug test panels. Our drug tests can be offer in single drug test or in multi drug tests. We manufacture drug tests with good high quality, Our rapid tests are FDA,CE,ISO approved.
