The novel corona-viruses belong to the β genus.COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel corona_x0002_virus 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 kit uses immunochromatography for detection. The specimen will move forward along the test card under capillary action. If the specimen contains a novel corona-virus antigen, the antibody will bind to the colloidal gold-labeled new corona-virus monoclonal antibody. The immune complex will be membrane fixed will be corona-virus monoclonal antibody capture, from the fuchsia line, the display will be corona-virus antigen positive. If the line does not show color, the negative result will be displayed. The test card also contains a quality control line C, which shall appear fuchsia regardless of whether there is a detection line.
Coronavirus is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus with an envelope of about 80 to 120 nm in diameter. Its genetic material is the largest of all RNA viruses and is an important pathogen of many domestic animals, pets, and human diseases. It can cause a variety of acute and chronic diseases. Common signs of a person infected with a coronavirus include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and dyspnea. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death. The 2019 new coronavirus, or “SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)” named by the World Health Organization can cause pneumonia epidemic.
