 Technical specifications

Drop-Tech is a “Lateral flow” type test, an immunochromatography technique on a solid support in which a fluid (in this case the sample diluted with the buffer solution) flows on a strip equipped with capillary transport beds, crossing four areas:

  • The “sample area”, in which the sample is placed
  • The “Conjugate area” in which specific antibodies directed against the glycoprotein of the Coronavirus are present in stoichiometric excess. These antibodies are also conjugated with colloidal gold nanoparticles. As they flow, the sample picks them up, dragging them up to the next area: if the virus is present, carrying the "antigen-antibody" immune complex that has formed plus the excess unconjugated specific antibodies; alternatively, only the specific non-conjugated antibodies flow
  • The “test area”: are in which additional specific antibodies directed against the il Coronavirus (but this time not conjugated with gold particles) are found. In this area, the previous immune-complexes still react and form a second complex, this time of type Antibody-Antigen-Antibody. These new products will be arranged in an orderly raw, thus drawing the first colored strip of the test (due to the tight alignment of the colloidal nanoparticles). The excess antibodies, on the other hand, will continue to migrate up to the control area
  • The “Control Area”: area that has antibodies that are no longer directed against the Coronavirus but, instead, specific against the antibodies of the conjugated area; they will react by forming an immunocomplex of the Antibody-Antibody type, which will thus form the second colored line
