What is considered to be male infertility?

The Male Fertility test is a rapid diagnostic test of sperm concentration in semen. Sperm count is widely recognized as the major indicator of the fertility in men.

The Male Fertility test kits are a unique home test that will indicate if a man’s sperm concentration is greater or less than the devices cut off point, 15 million sperm per mL of sperm. A positive result is going to be good news although it is not proof of fertility. A negative result suggests that the man should consult with his doctor as he is close to being sub-fertile, which is not all bad news, because it does at least save a couple months of trying for a baby when there maybe issues to resolve.

This Male Fertility test kit will allow a man to test his fertility potential, privately and discreetly in his own home.

Note: Sperm concentration of 15 million/ml is the minimum expected sperm concentration level for pregnancy.

SPECIMEN COLLECTION

  1. Before testing. It’s important that you refrain from any sexual activity for 3-7 days. This ensures that volume and quality of sperm is at it’s peak and test will be accurate determination of sperm concentration.
  2. Using masturbation, semen should be collected directly into the sperm collection cup.
  3. Do not contaminated by touch of and or tissue or any other materials.
  4. Shake semen evenly in the semen collection cup and leave it to stand for 15 minutes at room temperature until the semen liquefy. Do not use semen stored for more than 12 hours.

 

TEST PROCEDURE

  1. Remove the test panel from the foil pouch and lay it horizontally on flat surface. Using the pipette provided in the foil pouch, dispense one drop of semen into Sample Well marked “A”
  2. Once semen is soaked into Well “A”, add 3 drops of blue staining solution to Test Well “A”. Let it soak for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Now add 2 drops of transparent washing solution to Test Well “A”, and let it soak for 1-2 minutes, and then read the results immediately.
  4. Read the color of Test Well “A”, comparing the color of Test Well A to Reference Well B. The darker the color of Well A, the higher the sperm concentration

(Please refer to the Procedure Card Below:)

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

(Compare the color of test well A to reference well B)

 

NORMAL

The color of test well A is darker than or the same as the standard color of reference Well B. It means the that sperm concentration is grater than or equivalent to 15 million/ml. The likelihood of concentration is high with this sperm concentration, subject to other conditions, such as ovulation being favorable.

ABNORMAL

The color of test well A is lighter than the standard color of reference Well B. It means that the sperm concentration is less than 15 million/ml. This is  known as oligospermia. The likelihood of conception is less with this sperm concentration and further medical consultation is recommended.

NOTE:

If well A is colorless, it means the sperm concentration is less than 5 million/ml or zero. This condition is known as sever oligospermia or azoospermia.

Zika Ns1 Test Kit

NS1 Zika Test Kit (Whole Blood)

Easy To Used Zika Ns1 Rapid Test Cassette In Whole Blood / Serum / Plasma

A rapid test for a qualitative test for the detection of NS1 antigen of Zika virus in human whole blood, serum or plasma.

Applications:

The Zika NS1 Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of NS1 antigen of Zika virus in human whole blood, serum, or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of Zika infections.

 

Description:

Zika virus (ZIKA) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae. It is spread by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti and A. albopictus.Its name comes from the Zika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 1947. Zika virus is related to the dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile viruses. Since the 1950s, it has been known to occur within a narrow equatorial belt from Africa to Asia. From 2007 to 2016, the virus spread eastward, across the Pacific Ocean to the Americas, leading to the 2015–16 Zika virus epidemic.

The infection, known as Zika fever or Zika virus disease, often causes no or only mild symptoms, similar to a very mild form of dengue fever. While there is no specific treatment, paracetamol (acetaminophen) and rest may help with the symptoms. As of 2016, the illness cannot be prevented by medications or vaccines. Zika can also spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus. This can result in microcephaly,severe brain malformations, and other birth defects. Zika infections in adults may result rarely in Guillain–Barrésyndrome.

The Zika NS1 Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid test that utilizes a combination of Zika NS1 antibodies coated colored particles for the detection of Zika NS1 antigen in human whole blood, serum, or plasma.

 

How to use?

 

Allow the test, specimen, buffer and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.

1.Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the sealed  pouch and use it within 1 hour.

2.Place the cassette on a clean and level surface.

 

 

For Whole Blood specimen:

· Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 2 drops of whole blood (approximately 50 μL) to the specimen area, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μL), and start the timer. See illustration below.

For Fingerstick Whole Blood specimen:

  • Allow 2  drops of fingerstick whole blood specimen (approximately 50 μL) to fall into the specimen area of test cassette, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μL) and start the timer.
  • Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read results at 15 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.

 

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

POSITIVE: * Two distinct colored lines appear. One color line should be in the control region (C) and another color line should be in the test region (T).

*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of Zika NS1 antigen present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of red in the test region should be considered positive.

 

NEGATIVE: One color line appears in the control region (C). No apparent red or pink line appears in the test region (T).

 

INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test cassette. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.

ETG urine alcohol test strip kits

• ETG ethyl Glucuronide is a metabolite of alcohol which is formed by the body following comsumption of ethanol.
• ETG is detectable in urine for up to 3 days, long after ethanol has been cleared.

EtG is the main biomarker when it comes to highlight alcohol consumption, as this is a major metabolite of the ethanol contained in alcoholic beverages.

• ETG urine test kits is the best (comparison to saliva) can be used to detect alcohol consumption for up to 3 days ( 72 hours ) after consumption of alcohol.

• Sometimes referred to as 80 hour alcohol test
• Detection Limit:  0.02% to 0.30% for approximate relative blood alcohol level
• Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette will react with methyl, ethyl and allyl alcohols
• Quick and easy to use
• 100% accuracy
• Certified quality : CE, GMP, ISO product line.

How long does it take to get alcohol out of your system for a urine test?
The “EtG” Urine Alcohol Test detects ethyl glucuronide in the urine, which confirms alcohol ingestion as long as 3-4 days prior, or about 80 to 90 hours after the liver metabolizes alcohol.The EtG test has become known as the “80 hour test” for detecting any amount of consumed ethyl alcohol recently.

What’s the legal limit for alcohol in blood in Malaysia?

The legal limit for alcohol while driving in Malaysia is 80 milligrams per decilitre or 100 millilitres. (0.08%)

Other countries legal limit for Blood Alcohol Concentration

Why is Urine Alcohol Test Better than Breathalyzer?
DUI Breathalyzer Accuracy. In many DUI cases, breath analysis is used as a method to test for blood alcohol concentrations. … “Breath testing, as currently used, is a very inaccurate method for measuring BAC.

Sources of Breathalyzer Error

******

When should I do the test?
This test can be carried out at any time. To perform the test:

  1. Remove the cassette from sealed pouch and use it within 1 hour. Observe the reactive pad on central window of the cassette. If the reaction pad has a blue color before applying urine sample, do no use.
  2. Place the cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine to the specimen well of the cassette, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well.
  3. Read the results in 3-5 minutes. Compare the color of the reaction pad and standard color card to determine the relative blood alcohol concentration.

Results

To read the results of your test you will need to do the following.

 

 

Interpretation of Results

Positive: The Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette will produce a color change in the presence of urine alcohol. The color will range from light blue color at 0.02% relative blood alcohol concentration to a dark blue color near 0.03% relative blood alcohol concentration.

Note: The Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette is very sensitive to the presence of alcohol. A blue color that is lighter than 0.02% color pad should be interpreted as being positive to the presence of alcohol in urine but less than 0.02% relative blood alcohol.

Negative: When Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette shows no color change this should be interpreted as a negative result indicating that alcohol has not been detected.

Invalid:  If the color pad has a blue color before applying urine sample, do not use the test.

Note: A result where the outer edges of the color pad produces a slight color but the majority of the pad remains colorless the test should be repeated to ensure complete saturation of the pad with urine. The test is not reusable.

 

Conclusion: Clearly, the detection window for EtG in urine is significantly longer than it is with oral fluid. Therefore, Alcohol Urine Test is better.

Nicotine Test Kit

Simple. Fast. Reliable Accurate Test

Detects presence of Cotinine (Nicotine) in urine

CE Marked, ISO Approved

Accuracy 100%

Sensitivity 200ng/mL

Detect time nicotine in the body after use: 2 – 5 days

Nicotine test kit can determine whether a recent tabacco use in an individual. This include the use of tobacco, pipe tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, and smokeless tobacco. It’s very simple to test and easy to diy (do it yourself) and accurate.

Our tobacco test kit is a urine test that detects cotinine, which is produced when nicotine enters the body. Urine sample is collected, easy to read dip strip is use to measure nicotine levels. It takes only 5 minutes to determine whether nicotine test is negative or positive.

Cutoff level of 200 ng/ml will detect the presence of nicotine up to 2-4 days after use (possible longer, depending on the frequency of tobacco used.)

 

 How Long Does Nicotine Stays In Your System?

When a person smoke, nicotine is processed in your body and it will subside overtime. It’s estimated that about 80% of the nicotine that you inhale will be converted to cotinine in the liver. In your lungs, nicotine is metabolized into cotinine and nicotine oxide. These cotinine and others metabolites will then be excreted in the urine.

Therefore, cotinine is a reliable indicator of nicotine usage and a biomarker for tobacco used. That’s why nicotine test is also known as cotinine test, because the test test for presence of cotinine in the urine.

The length of time nicotine stays in your body will depend on 3 factors: amount you smoke, numbers of years smoked, and type of nicotine test is performed.

If it’s a urine nicotine test, you should be cleaned within 2-4 days of your last smoke. For heavy smokers, it will takes 1 week possibly longer for nicotine to leave your urine or remain undetectable level. Cotinine may take longer to be released from the body if you smoke menthol cigarettes, so that is another thing to keep in mind.

Cotinine is detectable in blood for at least several days after exposure to tobacco smoke. Depending on how much you smoke, the level of cotinine in your blood will reflect a nonsmoker level in 7 to 10 days.

The nicotine test that offers the longest detection window is a hair follicle nicotine test. These are rarely administered due to their expense, but they do exist. Nicotine can be detected for months after smoking cessation in the hair. Nicotine makes it to the hair the way all other drugs do, by its presence in the blood that nourishes the hair follicle.

While there are methods that you can use to clear your system of nicotine for a while, the ill effects of nicotine should be understood. There is nothing better than kicking the habit that can bring harm to you and your loved ones.

Can Electronic Cigarettes show up on a Nicotine Test?

Yes. The nicotine test is not testing for tobacco use, but instead for cotinine, a nicotine metabolite. E-Cigarettes produce an aerosol that contains nicotine and other tobacco-related compounds. While e-cigarettes may deliver less nicotine than traditional cigarettes, they can still show up on a Nicotine/Cotinine test.

Nicotine Test Uses

Businesses – More employers are testing their prospective or current employees for nicotine than ever. Life insurance companies continue to test for nicotine, through urine or blood-based testing, in order to determine premiums and detect fraud. Our nicotine test is a very standard urine test that is used by employers all over the country.

Test Yourself! – There are plenty of people who use nicotine tests, by themselves or in conjunction with their family, to gauge their progress in quitting and keep themselves honest. It’s simple and easy to buy one of our nicotine tests for yourself and keep yourself on the long and difficult path to being smoke-free.

Parents – Every day in the Asia, approximately 3,000 teens under the age of 18 begin using nicotine and 4.5 million teens are smokers. As anyone who has been a smoker knows, smoking is very hard to quit, and it doesn’t help that starting to smoke when you’re a teen makes it more likely that you’ll continue the habit than starting in your adult life. For parents these tests are a great way to keep your kid honest about their use, especially since second-hand smoke does not show up on these tests.

 

When should I do the test?

This test can be carried out at any time. To perform the test:

  1. Bring pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove test device from sealed pouch and use it within one hour.
  2. Place test device on clean and level surface. Hold dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine to specimen well (S) of the test device, and start timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well (S).
  3. Wait for the colored line (s) to appear. The result should be read at 5 mins. Do not interpret result after 10 mins.

 

 

Results

Interpretation of Results

Negative: Two lines appear. One color line should be in the control line (C) and another apparent colored line should be in the test line region (T). This negative result indicates that the Cotinine concentration is below the detectable level (200 ng/mL).

Note: The shade of color in the test line region (T) may vary, but it should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint colored line.

 

Positive: One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appear. This positive result indicates that Cotinine concentration exceeds the detectable level (200 ng/mL)

 

Invalid: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reason for control line failure. Contact your local distributor.

 

 

Alere HIV Combo (4th Generation HIV Test)

You may read about the latest 4th generation rapid test Alere produces, here is some information about it.

Alere HIV Combo is a latest 4th generation HIV Test also known as HIV P24 Antigen Test.

It detects :

a) p24 antigen (Ag)

b) Antibodies (Ab) to HIV Type 1 and Type 2 (HIV-1 and HIV-2) in human whole blood.

The Benefit of this Alere HIV Combo test is it also test for HIV Antigen And Antibody Test.

How soon can p24 antigen be detected?

The p24 antigen test can detect the p24 protein on average 10 to 14 days after infection with HIV.  One drawback of this test is that levels of the p24 protein peak at around three to four weeks after exposure to HIV and are usually not detectable after five to six weeks (and sometimes even earlier).

Advantages:

  • This Alere HIV 4th generation hiv test accuracy is 100%
  • Rapid, accurate result in just 20 minutes
  • Easy to use – requires minimal training and no expensive lab equipment
  • It detects more acute infections compared to 2nd and 3rd generation tests which helps close the window period and enables increased case finding at a time when individuals are highly infectious

Knowledge:

What’s the difference between 4th and 3rd gen test kits?

Fourth-generation tests kits look for both antibodies AND antigens.

  • P24 Antigens are proteins on the surface of the HIV particle.
  • Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to the HIV antigens. They fit together like a lock and key.

3rd generation tests take 6-8 weeks and only tests for antibodies.

4th generation tests are accurate 14 days after exposure, because this is when the p24 antigen becomes high enough to measure; effectively reducing the window period by average of 14 days.

A negative result at 28 days is good news but it is not conclusive. UK guidelines (BASHH) say that an early negative result at 28 days (1 month) needs to be confirmed with a second test 90 days (3 months) after the exposure.

Therefore, p24 antigen test window period is 14 days.
