One Step Malaria P.f. / P.v. antibody Test is a rapid self – performing, qualitative determination of Malaria
antibodies in human blood as an aid for in vitro diagnosis of Malaria infection
Malaria is casued by a parasite that is transmitted from one person to person by the bite of infected Anopheles mosquitoes. One Step Malaria P.f. / P.v. antibody Test is an immunochromatographic (rapid) test for the qualitative detection of antibodies of all isotopes (IgG,IgM,IgA) specific to Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax simultaneously in human serum, plasma or whole blood. Test contains a membrane stripe, pre-coated with recombinant malaria Pf capture antigen (MSP, CSP) on test band 1 region and with recombinant malaria Pv antigen (MSP, CSP) on test band 2 region.
Add 10 μl (one drop) of serum / plasma or 20 μl (two drops) of whole blood to the sample well(S)
Add 2 drops of clearing buffer.
Interpret test results in 10 to 20 minutes. Do not read results after 30 minutes.
Positive:(a). The presence of two color band (“1”and “C”) indicates a positive result for a infection with P. falciparum. (b). The presence of two color bands (“2” and “C”) indicates a positive result for a infection with P. vivax (c). The presence of three color bands (“T1”, “T2” and “C”) indicates a positive result for “mixed” infection.
Negative: One coloured line appears in the control line region(C). No line appears in the test line region (T)
Invalid: No visible band at all or test band without control band.
