Malaria Pf/Pv Test Device
ISO 13485 Certificate
The Malaria Pf/Pv Test Device is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) and vivax (Pv) antigen in human blood specimen. This device is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with plasmodium. Any reactive specimen with theMalaria Pf/Pv Ag Rapid Test must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s) and clinical findings.
Malaria is a mosquito-borne, hemolytic, febrile illness that infects over 200 million people and kills more than 1 million people per year. It is caused by four species of Plasmodium: P. falciparum, P.vivax, P. ovale, and P. malariae. These plasmodia all infect and destroy human erythrocytes, producing chills, fever, anemia, and splenomegaly. P. falciparumcauses more sever disease than the other plasmodial species and accounts for most malaria deaths. P. falciparum and P. vivax are the most common pathogens, however, there is considerable geographic variation in species distribution1.
Traditionally, malaria is diagnosed by the demonstration of the organisms on Giemsa stained thick smears of peripheral blood, and the different species of plasmodium are distinguished by their appearance in infected erythrocytes1. The technique is capable of accurate and reliable diagnosis, but only when performed by skilled microscopists using defined protocols2, which presents major obstacles for the remote and poor areas of the world.
The Malaria Pf/Pv Test Device is developed for solving these obstacles. It utilizes antibodies specific to P. falciparumHistidine Rich Protein-II (pHRP-II) and to P. vivax Lactate Dehydrogenase (Pv-LDH) to simultaneously detect and differentiate infection with P. falciparum and P. vivax-5. The test can be performed by untrained or minimally skilled personnel, without laboratory equipment
