Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9945395A1] A diagnostic test device contains a filter and detects antibodies having multiple antigen specificities from a blood sample for confirmatory testing of an infectious pathogen such as a microbe. The filter is an integral part of a strip and can be used for rapid strip-testing of whole blood and other particulate-containing solutions generally. Whole blood HIV tests are exemplified that are easy to carry out by untrained personnel and that can provide qualitative information about the subtype of an HIV. The multiple antigen testing capability is useful for confirmatory testing of other microbes such as syphilis and hepatitis C.
