Salmonella typhi Test Kits Introduction

Salmonella typhi IgG/IgM rapid test is solid phase immunochromatographic assay for the rapid, qualitative and differential detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Salmonella typhi in human serum, plasma or whole blood, as an aid in the diagnosis of typhoid fever. This test provides only a preliminary test result. Therefore more specific alternative diagnosis method must be used in order to obtain a confirmation of Salmonella typhi infection. There are three pre-coated lines on the Salmonella typhi Test strip, namely “G” for IgG testing, “M” for IgM, and “C” for quality control. A purple “G” and/or “M” lines will be visible in the result window if there are enough IgG and/or IgM antibodies to salmonella typhi in the sample.

Although Widal test and culture of the blood and stool are regarded as a confirmatory method, these methods take long time, and it may become too later to start antibiotic measures to treat the disease when the typhoid fever is confirmed. So, usually, if tested positive with a salmonella typhi rapid testing method, therapeutic trial with chloramphenicol can be taken during this waiting time for the widal test result. So, the Salmonella typhi IgG/IgM Test strip is helpful in the treatment of the typhoid fever.

SMNL Test Kits or Disease Background

Typhoid fever is a serious illness caused by a bacterium called Salmonella typhi, also known as Salmonella enterica enterica. With annually estimated 16-33 million cases and 216,000 deaths all over the world, the World Health Organization identifies typhoid fever as a serious public health problem. Typhoid fever is characterized by a slowly progressive fever as high as 40 centigrade, profuse sweating and gastroenteritis. Typhoid fever does not affect animals, and can be transmitted from human to human. Salmonella typhi bacteria are shed in the urine or stool of infected persons. People can be infected by eating or drinking contaminated food or water or by contacting with patients of Typhoid fever. Salmonella typhi is sensitive to common sanitary conditions, thus is easier to become epidemic in less developed countries. The incubation period ranges from 3 days to 3 months (depending on the number of bacteria ingested), but usually within 1-3 weeks after exposure. About 10% of untreated patients may shed infectious bacteria in their stool up to 3 months after onset of symptoms and 2%-5% may become permanent shedders, who are called chronic carriers.
