If you are concerned about malaria, you should use a rapid malaria test. There are several options available, including the Malaria Pf/Pan Ag Rapid Test, Dengue NS1 Antigen FP, and the iCare Malaria P. vivax Tri-line rapid test kit. It is also important to read the product insert before you begin the test.
iCare Malaria P. falciparum + P. vivax Tri-line Rapid Test Kit
This fast and convenient test kit detects Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax parasites, both of which can cause malaria. It uses two specific soluble proteins, histidine-rich protein II and lactate dehydrogenase, to determine the presence of the parasite. This allows doctors and health workers to know if a person has malaria or not.
This rapid test kit is available only for whole blood specimens, and should be used for detection of the presence of Plasmodium spp. antigens. The results should be interpreted with care because this test cannot be used as a sole diagnosis of malaria infection.
Malaria Pf/Pan Ag Rapid Test
The Malaria P.f./Pan Rapid Test Cassette is a qualitative test for malaria that is performed from a whole blood specimen. The test can detect malaria parasites by detecting antigens found in Plasmodium spp., but should not be used as a primary diagnosis of malaria infection.
The Advantage Malaria Card uses the Sandwich principle to identify malaria parasites. It works by using colloidal gold conjugate, a nitrocellulose strip, and two specific soluble proteins, histidine-rich protein II and lactate dehydrogenase. These proteins can differentiate between the two strains of malaria.
Malaria NS1 Antigen FP
This rapid test kit allows you to easily detect malaria by detecting antibodies in the blood. The test uses highly specific antibodies to detect malaria antigens. However, it should not be used as a primary diagnostic test. You should consult a physician if you suspect that you have malaria or you suspect that you may have the disease.
This rapid test kit detects circulating malaria antigens in the red blood cells or whole blood. The malaria protozoan invades the red blood cells of human hosts and is one of the deadliest diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), malaria affects approximately 300 million people worldwide and accounts for one million deaths each year. Sadly, most victims are children.
Dengue NS1 Antigen FP
The Dengue NS1 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette detects the dengue virus NS1 antigen in human serum or plasma samples. This test is designed for clinical use as a screening test for dengue virus infection. However, it should not be used as a definitive diagnosis. In such cases, alternative tests should be performed to confirm the results.
This rapid test kit is designed to detect the dengue NS1 antigen in human serum, plasma, and whole blood samples. It also detects the NS1 antigen in samples from patients with secondary infections. This makes the test more sensitive and reliable, and also increases the test’s value.
