Malaria Rapid Test Kits
Malaria pf/pv antibody and antigen rapid test kits are used as an aid in the diagnosis of malaria infection.
Malaria rapid diagnostic test kits, including Malaria Pf/Pv antigen test kit, Malaria Pf/Pv antibody test kit and Malaria Pf/Pan antigen test kit, are all blood test kits based on the principle of immune-chromatographic assay, which are widely used to qualitatively detect the malaria antibodies or antigens in human serum or whole blood, as an aid in the diagnosis of malaria infection, or in the monitoring of the malaria prognosis treatment.
Suitable for POCT Use
All the malaria test kits takes about of 15–20 minutes to get the assay result, and the results are read visually by observing the presence or absence of colored lines on the membrane of the test strip, so they are suitable to be used in the POCT setting as a quick screening method.
Malaria fever is a serious, sometimes fatal, parasitic disease characterized by fever, chills, and anemia and is caused by a parasite that is transmitted from one human to another by the bite of Anopheles mosquitoes. Four kinds of malaria can infect humans: Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax., P. ovale and P. malaria.
WHO emphasized the urgent need for simple and cost-effective diagnostic testing method for malaria, to overcome the deficiencies of both light microscopy and clinical diagnosis. Malaria immunoassay test devices are ideal testing devices that meet this requirements.
