MeriScreen Malaria Pf/PAN Ag

MeriScreenTM Malaria Pf/PAN Ag test is an in-vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of infection with Plasmodium parasites causing malaria in human whole blood specimens.

  • Detection of Histidine rich protein 2 specific for P. falciparum (Pf-HRP2)

  • Detection of Plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase common to all human Plasmodium species (PAN-pLDH)

  • Immunochromatography test for differential diagnosis of malaria

  • Use of monoclonal antibodies for better specificity
