This Malaria Rapid Test is a rapid, qualitative test for the detection of Plasmodium falciparum and/or Plasmodium vivax in whole blood. For the rapid qualitative determination of Malaria P. falciparum pecific histidine rich protein-2 (Pf HRP-2) and Malaria P. vivax specific lactate dehydrogenase (pvLDH) in human blood as an aid in the diagnosis of Malaria infection.
Diagnostic Automation offers two formats of the Malaria Rapid Test.

Malaria Rapid Test Background Information
Malaria Rapid Test know that Malaria is one of the world most prevalent parasitic diseases and ranks third in the world major infectious diseases in terms of mortality. The protozoal parasites that cause malaria are from the Plasmodium genus. When using this Malaria Rapid Test, it is important to know that four species of Plasmodium protozoa cause malaria: Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium malariae and Plasmodium ovale. Transmitted principally by the Anopheles mosquito, malaria infections may also occur from contacting infected blood, such as from blood transfusions. P. falciparum accounts for the majority of infections and is the most lethal. P. vivax, P. malariae and P. orale cause a less severe form of malaria with intermittent fever which is usually neither debilitating nor fatal. Those who inquire about the Malaria Rapid Test are familiar with the classic symptoms of malaria: fever, headaches, chills, vomiting, shivering and convulsions. In some rare forms of falciparum malaria, chills and fever may be absent and the patient may present with delirium or coma; this fact alone shows why it is important to be familiar with how well these Malaria Rapid Tests work. Remission periods can last from a few weeks to several months. Severe anemia is often attributed to the cause of death from a malaria infection. This Malaria Rapid Test will differentiate between the two species:Plasmodium falciparum and fPlasmodium vivax.

Malaria Rapid Test Principle
A rapid test for the qualitative detection of Malaria pf and pv antigen in human blood sample. The Malaria pf (HRP II) / pv (LDH) 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 (PfHRP-2) and another monoclonal antibody (test line 2) is specific to the lactate dehydrogenase of the P. vivax species (pvLDH). Conjugate pad is dispensed with monoclonal antibodies conjugated to colloidal gold, which are specific to P. falciparum histidine rich protein-2 (PfHRP-2) and specific to the lactate dehydrogenase of P. vivax. Therefore, the antigen of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax can be differentially detected. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
