About the Newfoundland Malaria Test

The Malaria P.f./P.v./Pan rapid test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of four proteins; plasmodium falciparum (P.f.), P. vivax (P.v.), P. ovale (P.o.), and P. malariae (P.m.) in whole blood.

Malaria is caused by a protozoan which invades human red blood cells. Malaria is one of the world’s most prevalent diseases. According to the WHO, the worldwide prevalence of the disease is estimated to be 300-500 million cases and over 1 million deaths each year. Most of these victims are infants and young children. Over half of the world’s population lives in malarious areas.

The Malaria P.f./P.v./Pan rapid test 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, anti-p.v. LDH and anti-pan LDH antibodies. During testing, the whole blood specimen reacts with the dye conjugate, which has been pre-coated on the test cassette. 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, with anti-p.v. LDH antibodies on the membrane on P.v. line region and with anti-pan LDH antibodies on the membrane on the Pan line region.

If the specimen contains HRP-II, p.v. LDH and/or pan LDH, coloured line (s) will appear in the P.f. line region, P.v. and/or Pan line region. The absence of the coloured lines in P.f. line region, P.v. line region and/or Pan line region indicates that the specimen does not contain HRP-II, P.v. LDH and/or Plasmodium-specific LDH. To serve as a procedure control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
