Myoglobin Test Card

Principle:
- This test for myoglobin is a sandwich immunoassay based procedure.
- When serum sample is added to sample pad, it moves through the conjugate pad and mobilizes gold anti-myoglobin conjugate that is coated on the conjugate pad.
- The mixture moves along the membrane by capillary action and reacts with antimyoglobin antibody that is coated on the test region.
- If myoglobin is present at levels of 100 ng/ml or higher, the result is the formation of a coloured band in the test region.
- If there is no myoglobin in the sample, the area will remain colourless.
- The sample continues to move to the control area and forms a pink to purple colour, indicating the test is working and the result is valid.

Reagents Supplied:
1. Myoglobin test device

Results Interpretation:
- Positive: If two coloured bands are visible within 10 minutes, the test result is positive and valid.
- Negative: If test area has no colour band and the control area displays a coloured band, the result is negative and valid.
- Invalid result: The test result is invalid if a coloured band does not form in the control region. The sample must be retested, using a new test device.

Expected Values:
- Range of normal serum myoglobin levels is 30-90ng/ml.
- 1 hour after onset of myocardial infarction, serum myoglobin level can increase to 200ng/ml or over.

Performance Characteristics for this rapid myoglobin test card: 100ng/ml or greater.

Background:
- Is a cytoplasmic serum protein which has a low molecular weight.
- Released more rapidly when muscle cells are damaged when compared to other markers.
- used readily for early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.
