About Joint Fluid Diagnostic Tests
Tests that can identify infections in joints and joint replacement. By use of a lateral flow immunoassay design, which utilizes cellulose membrane strips that are coated with antibodies and other reagents. A sample of joint fluid moves along the strip and reacts with the antibodies/reagents at different points in the strip. The end result is that the antibody/antigen concentrates and results in a visible line which can be compared to a control line. This appearance of a line indicates the patient has the joint disease that they are being tested for. The advantages of this technology include: quick results, no instrumentation, inexpensive, one unit to test and read, no capital expenditure and no refrigeration is required.
