Rapid Detection Kits

The quondam world, before the outbreak of this lethal virus COVID-19, was a better place to live in. But now due to this pandemic, we are bound to live a life we had never imagined before, as people are dying, connections are getting limited, poverty is rising and we all are helpless.

Therefore, to attenuate the repercussions of this virus, we have to outset the COVID-19 test kits assembly swiftly and efficiently. Why? Because the early a person is diagnosed, the more chances are there for him to survive. And due to this reason, the focus of the world is on making more and more test kits as soon as possible.

Why do we need to assemble more and more test kits? This is a question that would hit your mind instantly. The answer is: COVID-19 is having a plenitude of variants faster than a Chameleon would change its colours and to cope with it we are required to improve our test kits that could detect the latest variants with great precision.

Rapid Detection Of COVID-19: Possible?

With the rapid spread of COVID-19, its rapid detection has become mandatory. Therefore, various OEM one step rapid test kits have been introduced to diagnose the different variants of this virus proficiently.

The rapid detection test kits are capable of screening the presence of the virus while giving you information about the stage of the infection. Perfect! Isn’t it?

These kits are not only capable of detecting the virus rapidly but also relieves you from the frustrating and painstaking process of pharyngeal testings. Rapid detection kits use human serum, plasma or blood to diagnose the presence of the infection within your body and that too precisely.

The Role of Rapid Testing Kits:

There are two ways by which rapid testing kits work. One is through IgM (Immunoglobulin M) and the second is by IgG (Immunoglobulin G) antibody, with the help of these antibodies rapid testing kits are allowed to screen the presence of SARS-CoV-2 infection which is responsible for off-shooting the initiation of COVID-19 in a person’s body.

How Does Rapid Testing Kits Work?

The rapid testing kits are designed in such a way that they only need a human serum, plasma or a drop of human blood (same as to detect the level of sugar of a diabetic person) qualitatively against the SARS-CoV-2 and IgM/IgG antibodies.

What are the Pitfalls of Rapid Testing Kits?

As we know that everything is not perfect and so are these testing kits. We have mentioned some of the cons of these rapid testing kits, below:

●     These kits can give false results if the amount of SARS-CoV-2 infection in a person’s body is below the detection level of the kit.

●     These kits are high maintenance as they would not show results if it gets wet before use.

●     These kits are not feasible to use at home, therefore an expert is required for rapid testing kits.

Although these OEM one step rapid test kits are not perfect, they are more appropriate than the other detection kits for COVID-19.
