The FRT Quantitative Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is used for quantitative determination of Ferritin concentrations in whole blood/serum/plasma specimens. This test is intended for professional use as an aid in the diagnosis of diseases like iron deficiency anaemia.
Ferritin is a ubiquitous intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. The protein is produced by almost all living organisms, including bacteria, algae and higher plants, and animals. In humans, it acts as a buffer against iron deficiency and iron overload. Ferritin is a globular protein complex consisting of 24 protein subunits and is the primary intracellular iron-storage protein in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, keeping iron in a soluble and non-toxic form.Ferritin that is not combined with iron is called apoferritin.Serum ferritin is a good measure of iron stores, especially for someone who is iron-deficient. 2 billion people in the world are iron- deficient. In America, 68% of the infants at 6 months to 2 year-old are iron-deficient.
· Individually pouched test devices
· Package insert
· ID card
Bring tests, specimens,and/or controls to room temperature (15-30°C) before use.
1. Remove the test from its sealed pouch, and place it on a clean, level surface. Label the device with patient or control identification. For best results the assay should be performed within one hour.
2. Check/insert ID card into the equipment.
3. Place the test device on a clean and level surface.
4. Take 10µL serum/plasma/whole blood, and add to the buffer, fully mixed .Then transfer 75µL mixture into the specimen well (S) of the device with the pipette, Start the timer.
5.1. Scheduled Test: Choose the “Scheduled test” and choose the sample type. Insert the Test Cartridge onto the Test Cartridge Holder and click “Standard Test”.15minutes later, the result will show in the display and print out when click the Print button.
5.2. Immediate Test: Choose the “Immediate Test” and choose the sample type. 15minutes later, insert the Test Cartridge Holder and click “Quick Test”, then the result will show in the display and print out when click the Print button.
