How VetScan Canine/Feline Rapid Heartworm Test Kit, 25 Tests work?

The Heartworm Rapid Test is based on using heartworm-specific antibodies in an immuno-chromatographic sandwich assay. Antibody-coated colloidal gold particles bind to D. immitis antigen in the sample. The bound antigen flows through the strip and is then captured by antibodies on the test strip. The accumulation of the captured gold particle/antigen complex causes a color to become visible in the S (sample) area. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line in the C (control) area will always appear regardless if the sample is positive or negative.

2. Gently mix the sample by inverting.
3. Using the pipette provided, dispense 1 drop of sample (whole blood, serum, or plasma) into the sample well. wait for the sample to be absorbed (3 to 5 seconds).  
4. Holding the bottle vertically, promptly add 2 drops of the sample buffer to the sample well. 
5. Read the results within 10 minutes. High positive results may appear as soon as 1 minute and low positive results may take up to 10 minutes to appear. Do not read results after 15 min. Colored lines which appear after 15 minutes are not diagnostic and should be ignored.
