MALARIA TEST
RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (P.V+P.f)



RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (P.V+P.f) is a self-performing, qualitative, two site sandwich immunoassay, utilizing whole blood for the detection of P.falciparum specific histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2) and P.vivax specific pLDH test-malaria-1. The test can also be used for specific detection and differentiation of P.falciparum and P.vivax malaria in area with high rate of mixed infections.

Four species of the Plasmodium parasites are responsible for malaria infections in human viz. P.falciparum, P.vivax, P.ovale and P.malariae. Of these P.falciparum and P.vivax are considered the “Big Two” due to incidence of cerebral malaria and drug resistance associated with P.falciparum and high rate of infectivity relapse associated with P.vivax. As the course of treatment is dependent on the species, differentiation between P.falciparum and P.vivax is of utmost importance for better patient management and speedy recovery.

RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (P.V+P.f) detects the presence of pan malaria specific pLDH released from the parasitized blood cells for the detection of all malarial parasites. Whereas, for the detection of P.falciparum malaria, these tests utilizes the detection of P.falciparum specific histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2), which is a water soluble protein that is released from parasitized erythrocytes of infected individuals.

In the absence of P.falciparum specific Pf HRP-2, the presence of the pan malaria specific band points the presence of the other malarial species; viz; P.vivax, P.ovale or P.malariae. Specification is done and results inferred in the context of prevalence rates of the malarial species prevalent in the particular region. Since pLDH is a product of visible parasites, the pan band may also be used to monitor success of antimalarial therapy.

RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (Pan/P.f)



RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (Pan/P.f) is a self-performing, qualitative, two site sandwich immunoassay, utilizing whole blood for the detection of P.falciparum specific histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2) and pan specific pLDH. test-malaria-2The test may also be used for differentiation of P.falciparum and other malarial species and for the follow up of antimalarial therapy, in whole blood samples. Early detection and differentiation of malaria is of paramount importance due to the incidence of cerebral malaria and drug resistance associated with falciparum malaria and due to the morbidity associated with the other malarial forms

RAPID TEST CARD FOR MALARIA (Pan/P.f) detects the presence of pan malaria specific pLDH released from the parasitized blood cells for the detection of all malarial parasites. Whereas, for the detection of P.falciparum malaria, these tests utilizes the detection of P.falciparum specific histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2), which is a water soluble protein that is released from parasitized erythrocytes of infected individuals.

In the absence of P.falciparum specific Pf HRP-2, the presence of the pan malaria specific band points the presence of the other malarial species; viz; P.vivax, P.ovale or P.malariae.
