Drop-Tech is Promoitalia’s new SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test Kit specifically designed for the qualitative detection of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) antigen in human throat swab and nasal swab samples.
A lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay based on the antigen-antibody reaction and subsequent colorimetric detection.
Drop-Tech is provided with a rapid test strip on which specific antibodies, directed against the nucleocapsid protein of SARS-CoV-2, are found. These antibodies are, furthermore, conjugated with nanoparticles of colloidal gold.
If the viral antigen is present, a colored line appears on the test strip to confirm its presence.
Unlike other serological tests that do not include PCR and use spike protein detection, Drop-Tech has been designed with the nucleocapsid protein (N-Protein) as it is more abundant and easily detectable.
Drop-Tech is a valuable aid to help healthcare professionals identify a SARS-CoV-2 infection and, therefore, thanks to this initial screening, contributes to slowing down its widespread.
