The Filariasis Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies to Filarial parasites (W. bancrofti and B. malayi) in whole blood or serum/plasma to aid in the diagnosis of Filariasis.
Filariasis is a parasitic infection caused by thread-like nematodes (filariae). The filariae worms are spread by black flies and mosquitoes. The lymphatic filariasis known as Elephantiasis, mainly caused by filariae worms: W. bancrofti and Brugia malayi, affects about 120 million people over 72 countries (1). These infestations are common in tropical countries such as sub-Saharan Africa, southern Asia, the western Pacific islands, Brazil and Guyana. Diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis using traditional microscopy methods can be difficult and requires accurate and conscientious techniques, as it involves the identification of microfilariae in the blood of the infected person (2). Microscopy requires skilled handling of the sample preparation and an experienced technologist for interpretation of the blood smear (3). Simple Filaria test card uses conserved recombinant antigens to simultaneously detect IgG and IgM to the W. bancrofti and B. malayi parasites without the restriction on specimen collection.
