INTENDED USE:

Malaria P.f./P.v. Test Kit is a rapid and convenient immunochromatographic in vitro assay. It is used for detection of Plasmodium falciparum specific histidine-rich protein II (Pf HRP-II) and Plasmodium vivax plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase (pLDH) in whole blood, serum or plasma. The test provides a visual, qualitative result, and all positive specimens must be confirmed with other qualified assays. The test is intended for professional use.

SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:

Malaria is one of the world’s most prevalent parasitic diseases caused by the Plasmodium genus. Four species of Plasmodium protozoa cause malaria: Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale and P. malaria. The most serious forms of the disease are caused by Plasmodium falciparum. Malaria caused by P. vivax, P. ovale and P. malaria causes milder disease in humans that is not generally fatal. Malaria is transmitted usually by the Anopheles mosquito, and malaria infections may also occur from contacting infected blood, such as from blood transfusions. In humans, the parasites migrate to the liver where they mature and release another form, the merozoites, which multiply within red blood cells causing symptoms including fever, chills, flu-like illness and anemia, and in severe cases, coma and death.
