Benefits

  • Sensitive: The Clearview® Malaria Dual detects HRP-2 and pLDH and can differentiate a potentially deadly P.f. infection from an infection caused by other malaria parasites.
  • Rapid: The test yields results in 20 minutes.
  • Cost effective: By delivering quick and accurate results, RDTs can help improve the quality of patient care and reduce overprescription of anti-malaria drugs.
  • Easy to use: The Clearview® Malaria Combo uses venous or capillary whole blood and requires no additional instruments, microscopy, or laboratory infrastructure.
  • Comprehensive: The detection of the pLDH antigen indicates the presence of viable parasites, so the assay also allows for monitoring anti-malaria treatment.
