Schematic illustration of GICA. The serum is loaded onto the sample pad and the gold–rSPG conjugate is added onto the conjugate pad. The schistosome SEA is immobilized as the test line in the NC membrane. The rSPG is used as the control line. Following the application of a serum sample containing specific anti-S. japonicum IgG and non-specific IgG onto the NC membrane, the conjugated anti-S. japonicum IgG complex is captured by the SEA on the test line (T), resulting in a red band. The conjugated anti-S. japonicum IgG and nonspecific IgG are captured by the rSPG on the control line (C), resulting in a red band
