The Sofia S. pneumoniae Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral-flow technology to detect Streptococcus pneumonia cell wall polysaccharide (CWPS) antigen in human urine of patients with pneumonia and in cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) specimens of patients with meningitis. CWPS antigens, if present, bind to the detection particles. When the sample migrates up the Test Strip to the Test Line, the antigen-conjugate complex is bound to the capture antibody, forming a fluorescent line. If antigens are not present, the fluorescent microparticles will not be trapped by the capture antibodies nor detected by Sofia.
