One Step Malaria P.f. / P.v. whole blood antigen Test is a rapid, qualitative determination of Malaria antigen in
human blood as an aid for in vitro diagnosis of Malaria infection
Malaria remains one of the most serious tropical and subtropical diseases in many countries of the world. It is rampant in most areas of the tropics. One step malaria Pf/Pv 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).
Add 5μl of whole blood into sample well ("S" sample well)
Add 2 drops or 60-80 μl of Chase buffer into buffer well .
Read the test result at 20 mins.
Positive:The presence of two color bands (C and 1) indicates a positive result for P. falciparum. The presence of two color bands (C and 2) indicates a positive result for P. Vivax. The presence of 3 colored bands indicate a positive result for P falciparum and P Vivax,
Negative: One coloured line appears in the control line region(C).
Invalid: No visible band at all or test band without control band.
