RPR VDRL CARBON

Macroscopic flocculation (non treponemic) test for the rapid detection of reagin antibodies.

RPR VDRL CARBON test is a serologic cardiolipid and non-treponemic test for the quick detection of Syphilis. The reagent consists of a suspension of cardiolipin/lecithin/cholesterol and carbon particles in order to improve the visual reading.

Cardiolipid antigens react with the antibodies (reagin) present in the sample and form macroscopically visible black dumps.

  • Qualitative or semi quantitative approaches available
  • Cost-effective, routine laboratory test
  • Easy and ready-to-use
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Fast results for clinicians (8 minutes)
  • Simple visual reading, without expert interpretation

TPHA

The TPHA test detects human T. palladium antibodies based upon an indirect and simple hemagglutination method (HAI). Fowl erythrocytes are sensitized with T. palladium fragments.

In the presence of specific anti-T.palladium antibodies, sensitized erythrocytes (Test Cells) agglutinate and induce a characteristic structure on the microtiter plate (appearance of even layer) in the bottom of the well.

Unspecific reactions are detected using control cells which are unsensitized fowl erythrocytes.

  • Qualitative or semi quantitative approaches available
  • Cost-effective, routine laboratory test
  • Easy and ready-to-use
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Fast results for clinicians (<1 hour)
  • Simple visual reading, without expert interpretation
