Product Information

AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of AFP (Alpha-Fetoprotein) Test Strip. AFP (Alpha-Fetoprotein) Test Strip (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of high and low levels of AFP in serum or plasma. AFP Test Kit is used to assess probabilities of potential genetic disorders for example diagnosis of testicular teratocarcinoma and primary hepatocellular carcinomas. If there are high levels of AFP it could suggest the developing baby has spina bifida or anencephaly as in a neural tube defect.

These diagnostic devices detect AFP in serum and plasma using immune colloidal gold technology and the double antibody sandwich method. If the sample contains AFP, the reaction complex moves forward to the distinguishing area along the nitrocellulose membrane and is captured by AFP-specific antibody on the nitrocellulose membrane. The results are positive when a red reaction line appears in the detecting area. The red line will not appear, if the sample does not contain AFP or AFP level is lower than the minimum detectable quantity, which means the results are negative.

Additional Information

Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is generated by the Alpha-fetoprotein gene. AFP (Alpha-Fetoprotein) is a single-chain glycoprotein with a molecular mass of 65 000 unified atomic mass. AFP is thought to transport polyunsaturated fatty acids to develop malignant cells because of its high affinity to these substances. In the chromosomal location 4q25 is the human AFP gene. Large promoter P1 and 3 enhancers control the expression of AFP.

AFP is produced in a developing fetus’s liver which travels through the placenta into the mother’s blood. AFP production ends between and twelfth week of gestation. During the second trimester of pregnancy, it is possible to measure the level of AFP in a pregnant woman. Unusual alpha-fetoprotein levels can be a sign of a birth defect or other conditions. These include a neural tube defect, Down syndrome, twins or multiple births, miscalculation of the due date or intellectual development. In theory, AFP is a fetal form of serum albumin in monomeric, dimeric and trimeric forms, which attaches to nickel, fatty acids, bilirubin, and copper. AFP (Alpha-Fetoprotein) function is not clear and it is still under investigation.

AFP blood test checks the risk of birth defects and genetic disorders. The AFP test is recommended if the pregnant woman is at least 35 years old, has diabetes or a family history of birth defects.
