Product Description

The Biopanda Malaria P.f. Rapid Test qualitatively detects Plasmodium falciparum (P.f.) antigen in human whole blood samples. This test applies lateral flow immuno-chromatography and is a tool to assist in the diagnosis of malaria.

Test Attributes

  • Whole blood may be used for testing
  • Results available in only 10 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for assisting to diagnose malarial infections
  • Results increase the effective administration of anti-malarial drugs

Test Procedure (strip)

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing. Ensure the blood specimen is mixed well.
  2. Open the foil wrapped pouch and remove the test strip. Use the test as soon as possible or within one hour of opening.
  3. Transfer the whole blood specimen to the blood collection tube using a pipette or dropper.
    1. Pipette use: Transfer 10 µl of whole blood to the collection tube, then add 3 drops of buffer (180 µl) and start the timer.
    2. Dropper use: Hold the dropper provided vertically and draw the blood specimen (10 µl) to the fill line (see illustration). Transfer the specimen to the collection tube, then add 3 drops of buffer (180 µl) and start the timer.
  4. With arrows facing towards the blood specimen, immerse the strip into the sample and start the timer. Ensure the blood specimen does not pass the maximum line on the test strip.
  5. Read the results at 10 minutes. Results read after 20 minutes are considered invalid.

Principle

The Malaria P.f. Rapid Test Strip is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of P.f. antigen in whole blood. The membrane is precoated with P.f. antibody. During testing, the whole blood specimen reacts with the dye conjugate, which has been pre-coated in the test strip. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with P.f. antibody on the membrane on the test line. If the specimen contains P.f. antigen, a coloured line will appear in the test region. The absence of the coloured line in the test region indicates that the specimen does not contain P.f. antigen. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
