Filariasis (IgG/IgM) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay (test kit) that is used for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to Filariasis parasites (W. bancrofti and B. Malayi) in whole blood, serum, or plasma to help in the diagnosis of an infection namely Filariasis.
No restrictions for sample collection on time of day.
Use a serum, plasma, or whole blood.
The simple procedure promotes an alternative to diagnosis by blood smear.
The use of conserved antigens lets ‘pan-filaria’ tests be applicable.
