The Rheumatoid Factor is a high diagnostic interest biological marker for adult rheumatoid arthritis. ELITex Bicolor RF is a latex slide agglutination test for the rapid detection of Rheumatoid Factor in serum samples.
ELITex Bicolor RF is an agglutination slide test. It consists of latex particles allowing the rapid qualitative or semi-quantitative detection of IgM Rheumatoid Factor in sera from most of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The TEST LATEX is constituted by latex particles sensitized by human gamma-globulins, which agglutinate specifically Rheumatoid factor (FII-type reaction). The presence of Rheumatoid Factor in sera is revealed by a red agglutination on a more or less intense blue background, visible to the naked eye. Otherwise, no agglutination is observed and the suspension remains homogeneous with a uniform purple color. Handling is simple and fast. It is performed on pure serum and the results are obtained in 2 minutes.
Easy-to-read and easy-to-interpret results
The kit contains an internal quality control which allows observing a positive and a negative reaction as described below:
|Positive +||Negative –|
|Result||Formation of red agglutinates on a more or less blue intense background||No agglutination. The suspension remains homogeneous and purple|
|Interpretation||Presence of Rheumatoid Factor||Absence of Rheumatoid Factor|
