Biocard Candida rapid test is a CE marked and FDA approved product. The latex particles are coated with antibodies against Candida. The reagent is dispensed as test doses and dried on the test card. The test is performed by adding one drop of diluted vaginal swab specimen onto the reagent dot.
After mixing, the test is rotated to facilitate the formation of antigen-antibody complexes. If Candida antigen is present in sample it reacts with the antibody-coated test latex particles, and visible agglutination or clumping will occur. If the sample is free of Candida antigen the reaction mixture remains homogeneous throughout the test. The control latex reveals those infrequent samples, which spontaneously react with protein-coated latex particles.
