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. Thereare 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.
At the present, malaria is diagnosed by looking for theparasites in a drop of blood. Blood will be put onto a microscope slideand stained so that the parasites will be visible under a microscope.The Malaria pf/pv Test contains amembrane strip, which is pre-coated with two monoclonal antibodiesas 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-2) and another monoclonal antibody (test line 2) is specific to the lactate dehydrogenase of the P. vivax species (pvLDH). Conjugatepad is dispensed with monoclonal antibodies conjugated to colloidalgold, 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 Plasmodiumvivax can be differentially detected.
Malaria is a disease serious parasitic characterized by fever, chills, and anemia and is caused by a parasite that is transmitte. The disease now occurs inmore than 90 countries worldwide, and it is estimated that there areover 500 million clinical cases and 2.7 million malaria-caused deathsper year. This Malaria pf&pv test cassette is very sensitive and only takes about 15 minutes. Test results of this malaria kit can be read visually without any instruments.
