Positive control wells (malaria)
In collaboration with FIND, Microcoat has developed a simple, field-adapted method to evaluate the quality and validity of marketed malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) based on HRP2 detection.
Malaria RDTs provide a reliable malaria diagnosis method in remote areas and clinics. However, variability in test performance has been documented, which might be due to poor manufacture or to exposure to high temperatures during transport and storage. The vital importance of accuracy in diagnosing malaria, a potentially fatal disease, makes it essential to guarantee product quality.
The kit contains 0.1 mL of sterile PCW water to reconstitute the PCW tube; a dropstir for transfer of the PCW water to the PCW tube; and a micropipette for transferring the PCW solution to the RDT sample well. Manufacturer instructions included.
