MeriScreen Malaria Pf/Pv Ag

MeriScreenTM Malaria Pf/ Pv Ag test kit is an in-vitro diagnostic immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of infection with Plasmodium parasites causing malaria in human whole blood specimens. It does not assess parasite densities.

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

  • Detection of Plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase specific to Plasmodium vivax (Pv-pLDH)

  • Use of monoclonal antibodies for better specificity

  • Immunochromatography test for differential diagnosis of malaria species Pf and Pv
