PlasmoNexTM is a multiplex PCR that able to detect all 5 different types of human Plasmodium and to differentiate the species. High sensitivity of the PlasmoNexTM allows the parasites to be detected at the level which is difficult to be pick up by peripheral blood film. The PlasmaNexTM PCR test is faster, simpler and more convenient to perform.

Platform : Multiplex PCR
Detection : Presence and differentiation of Plasmodium falciparum,
Plasmodium Vivax, Plasmodium
ovale and Plasmodium knowlesi
Specimen : Whole blood
Life : 6 months
time : 2.5 hours
level : 1 pg/μl or less; detection level vary with Plasmodium species

The advantages:

  • Convenient, easy and fast to perform.
  • Minimal sample volume needed.
  • Able to differentiate species of Plasmodium.
  • Results are easy to interpret.
  • Ideal for private or hospital laboratories to screen a varying number of tests.
