PRINCIPLE OF THE TEST
This test uses double-antibody sandwich to legally detect the antigen of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in saliva samples. During detection, the gold labeled anti-2019-nCoV monoclonal antibody in the labeling pad binds to the 2019-nCoV antigen in the sample to form a complex, and the reaction complex moves forward along the nitrocellulose membrane under the action of chromatography, it is captured by the anti-2019-nCoV monoclonal antibody pre-coated by the detection zone (T) on the nitrocellulose membrane, and finally a red color reaction line is formed in the T zone. If the sample does not contain 2019-nCoV antigen, a red color reaction line cannot be formed in the T zone. Regardless of whether the sample to be tested contains 2019-nCoV antigen, a red reaction line will always form in the quality control area (C).
MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS
Materials provided with the test
The Test Cup is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from 2019-nCoV in saliva specimens directly collected from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first 7 days of symptom onset.
Results are for the identification of 2019-nCoV nucleocapsid protein antigen. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease.
Negative results should be treated as presumptive, and do not rule out 2019-nCoV infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions. Negative results should be considered in the context of a patient’s recent exposures, history, and the presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and confirmed with a molecular assay, if necessary, for patient management.
The Test Cup is intended for use by trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in vitro diagnostic procedures.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION
The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia and diarrhea are found in a few cases.

This reagent uses double-antibody sandwich to legally detect the antigen of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in saliva samples.

STORAGE AND STABILITY
- Store the Test Cup as packaged between 2-30°C.
- The Test Cup is stable until the expiration date printed on the outer packing.
- Do not use beyond the expiration date.
- Do not freeze any contents of the test
- The Test Cup must remain in the sealed pouch until use.
- Insert the sponge end of the saliva swab into mouth. Actively swab the inside of the mouth and tongue to collect oral fluid for 3 minutes.
- Remove the saliva swab from the mouth when the sponge become fully saturated and the inductor turn red.
- Do not eat or drink any things for 4 hours before the test
- The samples should be used as soon as possible after collected.
- Samples should not be inactivated.
Before test, please read the instructions carefully.
- Take the Test Cup to equilibrate to room temperature.
- Unpack the aluminum foil bag, place the Test Cup horizontally on the table and mark it.
- Insert the saliva swab into the Test Cup and screw the cap.
- Tighten the lid and start the timer.
- As the test begins to work, the purple color move across the result window in the center of the test device.
- Wait for 15 minutes and read the results. Do not read results after 20 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF TEST RESULTS
This product can only perform qualitative analysis on the detection object.
If both C and T lines are visible within 15 minutes, the test result is positive and valid.
Note: Specimens containing very low levels of target antibodies may develop two colored lines over 15 minutes.
If test area (T line) has no color and the control area displays a colored line, the result is negative and valid
The test result is invalid if a colored line does not form in the control region. The sample must be re-tested, using a new Test Cup.
- The result of the Test Cup should not be taken as a confirmed diagnosis, for clinical reference only. Judgement should be made along with RT-PCR results, clinical symptoms, epidemiological information and further clinical data.
- Test Cup performance depends on the amount of virus (antigen) in the sample and may or may not correlate with viral culture results performed on the same sample.
- The Test Cup must be equilibrated to room temperature (18℃~26℃) before used, otherwise the results may be incorrect
- A negative test result may occur if the level of antigen in a sample is below the detection limit of the test.
- Failure to follow the Test Procedure may adversely affect test performance and/or invalidate the test result.
- React less than 15 minutes may lead a false negative result; React more than 15 minutes may lead a false positive result.
- Positive test results do not rule out co-infections with other pathogens.
- Negative test results are not intended to rule in other viral or bacterial infections.
- Negative results should be treated as presumptive and confirmed with a molecular assay.
- Clinical performance was evaluated with fresh samples.
- Users should test specimens as quickly as possible after specimen collection.
1. Clinical Verification
The performance of Test Cup was established with 232 sample collected from symptomatic patients, who with symptoms onset within 7 days.
Sensitivity: 95.28% (101/106), 95% CI (89.43,97.97)
Specificity: 98.41% (124/126), 95% CI (94.40, 99.56).
|2019-nCoV Ag Saliva Rapid Test Cup (Immunochromatography)||Comparative RT-PCR Test Result|
|Positive (+)||Negative (-)||Total|
The performance of Test Cup with positive results stratified by the comparative method cycle threshold (Ct) counts were collected and assessed to better understand the correlation of assay performance to the cycle threshold, As presented in the table below, the positive agreement of the Test Cup is higher with samples of a Ct count <25.

2. Limit of Detection
The experimental results show that for the virus culture concentration above 100 TCID50/mL, the positive rate of detection is greater than or equal to 95%. For the virus culture concentration of 50 TCID50/mL and below, the positive rate of detection is lower than 95%. So, the limit of detection of the Test Cup is 100 TCID50/mL.
Cross-reactivity of the Test Cup was evaluated. The results showed no cross reactivity with the following specimen.
4. Interference Substances
The test results do not be interfered with the substance at the following concentration:
1. Test 10 replicates of negative and positive by using the reference materials of enterprises. The negative agreement and the positive agreement were 100%.5. Precision
2. Test three different lots kits including positive and negative reference materials of enterprises. The negative results and the positive results were 100%
6. Hook Effect
The Test Cup was tested up to 1.6 × 105 TCID50/ml of heat-inactivated 2019-nCoV strain and no high-dose effect was observed.
