|Item||OneStep PSA InstaTest|
|Description|| Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a serine protease that is
found only in the prostate within the epithelial cells of the
acini and ducts. Normal PSA concentration in whole blood or
serum is 0.1-2.6 ng/ml. Reports have suggested that elevated
level of whole blood or serum PSA is the must useful tumor
markers in diagnosis of prostate cancers. InstaTest PSA is
designed to detect PSA concentration in whole blood or serum
as low as 4 ng/ml within 15 minutes.
There is one immunochromatographic testing device in a protected pouch with desiccant and one disposable sample dropper. A testing device is a test membrane with anti-PSA antibodies and conjugates in a stabilizing matrix containing proteins and sodium azide, enclosed in plastic casing.
The result is read visually by observing the symbols developing in the test ("T") and control ("C") zones of the result window. Distinctive control line also serves as an indicator of proper performance of the test device. Comparative studies demonstrated that relative sensitivity of InstaTest PSA is 100%, and its relative specificity is 98.5%.
