MALARIA Pf/Pv ANTIGEN CARD TEST
Test for qualitative detection of Malaria P. falciparum and P. vivax in human whole blood samples.
Malaria is a serious 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 infected Anopheles mosquitoes. There are four kinds of malaria that can infect humans: Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. Ovale, and P. Malariae. In humans, the parasites (called sporozoites) migrate to the liver where they mature and release another form, the merozoites.
The Malaria Antigen Test contains a membrane strip, which is pre-coated with two monoclonal antibodies as two separate lines across a test strip. One monoclonal antibody (test line 1) is specific to the P. falciparum histidine rich protein-2 (pf HRP II) and another monoclonal antibody (test line 2) is pan specific to lactate Dehydrogenase (Pan LDH) of plasmodium species (P.Falciparum, Vivax, Malariae, Ovale). Conjugate pad is dispensed with monoclonal antibodies conjugated to the colloidal gold, which are specific to P. Falciparum histidine rich protein-2(pf HRP-II) and pan specific to the Lactate Dehydrogenase (Pan LDH) of other Plasmodium species.
