C011-C (AFP) Alpha Feto-Protein Rapid Test
Alpha feto-protein (AFP) is a major protein in fetal circulation during early life. Serum AFP has been shown to increase in various disease states, including hepatic primary and metastatic tumors, germ cell tumors, hepatitis, and cirrhosis. AFP is also found at an elevated level in amniotic fluid and maternal serum in the case of neural tube defects.
AFP cassette test is a colloidal gold/antibody complex based immunoassay designed for the qualitative determination of human alfa-feto protein in serum/plasma/whole blood. It is intended for professional use as an aid in monitoring the effectiveness of therapy of hepatocellular cancer, as well as in the detection of neural tube defects.
