Malaria is one of the world’s most prevalent diseases, and according to the WHO, there are an estimated 300-500 million cases worldwide and over one million deaths each year. Common symptoms of malaria include fever, flu-like illness, shaking, chills, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, diarrhoea and nausea/vomiting. With this professional in-clinic test, you can determine the levels of P.f., P.v., P.o., and P.m. antigens in the blood to aid in the early detection of malaria so you can seek further treatment.

  • Rapid, same-day results
  • Quick, accurate diagnosis of malaria

About the Malaria Test

The Malaria P.f./P.v./Pan rapid test is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of P.f., P.v., P.o. and P.m. antigens in whole blood. The membrane is pre-coated with anti-HRP-II antibodies, anti-p.v. LDH and anti-pan LDH antibodies. During testing, the whole blood specimen reacts with the dye conjugate, which has been pre-coated on the test cassette. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane by capillary action, reacts with anti-Histidine-Rich Protein II (HRP-II) antibodies on the membrane on P.f. test line region, with anti-p.v. LDH antibodies on the membrane on P.v. line region and with anti-pan LDH antibodies on the membrane on Pan line region. If the specimen contains HRP-II, p.v. LDH and/or pan LDH, coloured line (s) will appear in P.f. line region, P.v. and/or Pan line region. The absence of the coloured lines in P.f. line region, P.v. line region and/or Pan line region indicates that the specimen does not contain HRP-II, P.v. LDH and/or Plasmodium-specific LDH. To serve as a procedure control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
