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

The Heartworm Rapid Test detects specific heartworm antibodies in an immunochromatographic sandwich assay. Particles of colloidal gold coated in antibodies bind to antigens of D. immitis within the sample. These bound antigens flow through the test strip and are captured by antibodies. Accumulation of the captured antigen and gold particle complex causes a color to appear in the sample (S) area. As a procedural control, the control area (C) will appear in a negative or a positive result.
