European Medical Device Nomenclature (EMDN) is the nomenclature of use by manufacturers when registering their medical devices in the EUDAMED database. EMDN is characterised by its alphanumeric structure that is established in a seven-level hierarchical tree.
The order of this product needs to be justified and is only acceptable under certain conditions.
Thermosensitive codes are defined for storage and transportation temperature requirements of the products.
The product is part of at least one Kit. A kit is a collection of products (medical and/or logistic) that are needed for a certain intervention in emergency. The choice and quantity of the articles reflects the MSF protocols for this specific situation. The use of Kits allows to start an intervention without a detailed evaluation.
OC subscriptions: included in supply or field order tools (e.g. UniField)
SC subscriptions: included in supply or field tools
OC validations: approved for procurement and use by an OC for international or local orders specifying context and activity in Medical Standard Lists (MSL)

Instructions for use

Follow the instructions in the leaflet.

Provide an automatic pipette or disposable pipettes (MiniPets) and corresponding tips for the application of the 50 µl sample (see related articles below).

For serum or plasma samples

  • No additional reagent is required
  • For plasma samples, use EDTA tubes

For whole blood samples

  • Chase buffer is mandatory, ref. 7D2243 or 7D2243R(must be ordered separately, see related articles below)
  • For venous samples, use EDTA tubes
  • For capillary samples, use EDTA capillary tubes, ref. 7D2227 (must be ordered separately, see related articles below)

The absence of positive and negative external controls requires to perform a control on a known blood, fresh or kept in good conditions (2º - 8ºC).

Within the MSF pretransfusional protocol, it is recommended to collect a single blood sample in a tube with anticoagulant, EDTA, in order to perform all the necessary tests (blood group determination, screening for hepatitis, HIV, syphilis and malaria).

CAUTION: As any HIV test used alone, this test has no diagnostic value. It should be confirmed by a second rapid test.

Please consult the “Updated laboratory procedures, 2022” available online via the Laboratory working Group sharepoint page: Laboratory Procedures and Resources.
