Detection principle and precautions of toxoplasma gondii detection kit for dogs and cats

- 2024-01-08-

Toxoplasmosis in dogs and cats is a zoonotic parasitic disease caused by toxoplasmosis. The main manifestations are fever, anorexia, depression, vomiting, diarrhea, feces mixed with blood, liquid, cough, eyes and nose secretions, dyspnea, visual mucosa pale; Some have iritis and even blindness. Toxoplasma gondii reproduces sexually and gametes in the cat's gut, develops into an egg sac, and is excreted in the feces. Under suitable conditions, it develops into infectious sporogenous oocysts after sporulation. After being swallowed by healthy dogs and cats, oocysts escape in the intestine, enter the tissues of the body with the blood circulation, invade cells and rapidly divide and proliferate, and open into intracellular pseudocysts, causing clinical symptoms.

This kit uses double antibody sandwich immunochromatography. If the sample contains enough Toxoplasma antibodies, the antibodies will bind to the Toxoplasma antigen coated with colloidal gold on the gold label pad, forming an antigen-antibody complex. When this complex migrates upward to the detection area (T-line) with the capillary effect, it binds to another antigen to form an "antigen-antibody-antigen" complex and gradually agglutinates into a visible detection line (T-line), and excess colloidal gold antigen continues to migrate to the quality control area (C-line) to be captured by monoclonal antibody and form a visible C-line. The test results are displayed on the C and T lines. The red band displayed by the quality control line (C line) is the standard to determine whether the chromatographic process is normal, and also serves as the internal control standard of the product.

Toxoplasma antibody (TOXO Ab)Test Kit from babio can quickly and qualitatively detect toxoplasma antibodies in dog or cat serum for screening and auxiliary diagnosis of toxoplasma infection.
