A Rapid test for the diagnosis of syphilis to detect antibodies (IgG, IgA and IgM) to Treponema palladium (TP) qualitative in serum or plasma. It is for professional invitro diagnostic use only.
The syphilis Ultra rapid test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies (IgG, IgA and IgM) to Treponema pallidum (TP) in serum or plasma to aid in the diagnosis of syphilis.
Treponema Pallidum (TP) is the causative agent of the venereal disease syphilis. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the number of cases of syphilis infection has markedly increased since 1985. Some key factors that have contributed to this rise include the crack cocaine epidemic and the high incidence of prostitution among drug users. One study reported a substantial epidemiology correlation between the acquisition and transmission of the HIV virus and Syphilis.
