Alere™ Malaria Ag P.f

Ultra Sensitive

The Alere™ Malaria Ag P.f test is 10 times more sensitive than current malaria rapid diagnostic tests for the detection of Plasmodium falciparum HRP-II antigen1, enabling significantly better identification of individuals with very low parasitemia, with and without evident symptoms of malaria infection.

The systematic identification and treatment of infected individuals will reduce the malaria reservoir in the community and thereby drive down transmission.2
