Cholera Rapid Diagnostic

This simple, easy-to-interpret rapid cassette test identifies cholera in water or in human waste samples and is ideal for community health workers and humanitarian settings. CE marked tests with quality control.

  • Antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay
  • Can be used with human fecal sample or environmental water
  • Results ready in 15 minutes

THE PROBLEM

Caused by the toxigenic, Vibrio cholerae, cholera continues to be a major source of morbidity and mortality and is endemic in more than 60 countries. The bacterial infection, spread through contaminated water, causes severe diarrhea and dehydration and can be fatal. Cholera appears to be increasing in intensity and duration and tends to be a disease of the poor, with outbreaks occurring where sanitation is insufficient. It is important to note that incidence is highest in children because they lack immunity. In addition, children (or adults) who are malnourished are at greater risk of severe effects of cholera.

THE SOLUTION

Rapid tests at the point of care are a way to monitor for outbreaks and to test those with symptoms or test brackish water which may be a reservoir for the bacteria. The Vibrio Cholerae O1 (VC O1) Test Kit is a rapid and convenient antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of Vibrio cholerae O1 (VCO1) including both O1-Inaba and/or O1-Ogawa serotype in human fecal sample or environmental water.

To test, a sample of environmental water or human feces (liquified) is pipetted to the sample well of the test and a buffer is added to the buffer well. The test works by detecting Vibrio cholerae O139 in the sample as it flows through the assay by first Vibrio cholerae O139 antibodies conjugated with colloidal gold that attach to Vibrio cholerae O139 and provide a “visual tag” for the antigen-antibody-colloidal gold complex and second, by a test zone with immobilized antibodies that capture the complex, the visual tags producing a visible pink-colored band that is confirmation of the presence of Vibrio cholerae O139 and a positive result for cholera. If there is no pink line, Vibrio cholerae O139 is not present, indicating a negative result for cholera. Results are ready in 15 minutes.
