The Malaria P.f/Pan Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of circulating antigens of Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium malariae in whole blood.
Principle of Malaria P.f/Pan Rapid Test Device
The Malaria P.f/Pan Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) 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 and anti-Aldolase antibodies. During testing, the whole blood specimen reacts with the dye conjugate, which has been pre-coated on the test strip. 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 and with anti-Aldolase antibodies on the membrane on Pan Line region. If the specimen contains HRP-II or Plasmodium-specific Aldolase or both, a colored line will appear in P.f line region or Pan line region or two colored lines will appear in P.f line region and Pan line region. The absence of the colored lines in P.f line region or Pan line region indicates that the specimen does not contain HRP-II and/or Plasmodium-specific Aldolase. To serve as a procedure control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
