3rd Generation Enzyme Immunoassay for the determination of antibodies to Plasmodium species in human serum and plasma.
The kit is intended for the screening of blood units and the identification of people that came into contact with the protozoa and developed an immunological response.
The kit is for in vitro diagnostic use only and the test has to be carried out by professional people, opportunely trained.
Plasmodium species are obligate intracellular protozoa related to Babesia and Toxoplasma.
Plasmodium species reproduce sexually in mosquitoes; mosquitoes transmit the resulting sporozoites into humans where the organisms reproduce asexually.
