Malaria Card Test Kit is a visual, sensitive and rapid immunoassay for the qualitative differential spotting of P.falciparum (HRP-2) as well as P.vivax (pLDH) malaria matter in human blood only. It is an immunoassay settled on the "Sandwich principle". Colloidal gold is united to P.f. specific monoclonal anti-HRP-2 antibody as well as monoclonal anti-pan specific pLDH (plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase) antibodies. The Malaria Card Test Kit employ monoclonal anti-P.v specific pLDH antibody (test line V) as well as monoclonal anti-Pf HRP-2 antibody (test line F), which is withheld on a nitrocellulose strip and is easy to interpret.
Oscar Malaria Antibody (Pf/Pv) Card test intended used for qualitative detection of antibodies of MSP- Pf (Plasmodium falciparum) and MSP-Pv (Plasmodium vivax) in human whole blood / serum / plasma as in aid of Malaria diagnosis. This test can be used for differential detection of antibodies of Pf and Pv. It is for in-vitro diagnostic use only.
The test is based upon immuno-chromatographic principle. Recombinant MSP (Merozoit specific protein) of Pf and Pv have been used in the test formulation to make it highly sensitive and specific for antibody detection. Serum / plasma is preferred choice for testing but whole blood also can be used. Assay buffer is required along with serum / plasma for performing the test.
Oscar Malaria Antibody (Pf/Pv) Card test has shelf life of 24 months from date of manufacturing if stored at 2-30°C under sealed condition. Each kit of Oscar Malaria Antibody (Pf/Pv) Card test contains 40 pieces of individually sealed pouches containing test cards, buffer vials and disposable sample droppers. Test can be performed using 10µl of serum / plasma / whole blood followed by 1-2 drops of assay buffer and result can be read within 5-20 minutes.
