Alethia™ Malaria / illumigene Malaria by Meridian Bioscience

Catalog Number: 280925

Product Description

DNA Amplification Assay for the direct Detection of Plasmodium spp. DNA in human whole blood samples.

The Alethia / illumigene Malaria DNA amplification assay, performed on the Alethia / illumipro-10, is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection of Plasmodium spp. DNA in human venous EDTA whole blood specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of malarial infection. The assay targets a region of the Plasmodium genome that is conserved across Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium malariae, and Plasmodium knowlesi. Results from Alethia / illumigene Malaria assays are intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of human malaria infection. The test does not require specialized laboratory equipment.

    Customer Reviews

    "Whilst Good Laboratory Practice is vital illumigene proved easy to use and both Microbiology and Haematology staff now perform this test which is particularly useful “out of hours”. The whole test process can be completed in under an hour with only a few minutes’ hands on time required.

    As the first laboratory in Great Britain to use the Meridian illumigene Malaria kit we would recommend it as an aid to malaria diagnosis. In addition we found Meridian Bioscience a professional and helpful company to have dealings with.

    "We have been using illumigene Malaria since a year ago. It has been a real pleasure for us using this technique as results now arrive on time, because prior to having it, it was always stressful to receive a request for Plasmodium and stressful for the technicians as well. We needed a reliable result and one that comes rapidly and now we have no problems with false positives or false negatives. We are very satisfied with this acquisition."

    Dr Thomas Guedent, BIO67, Strasbourg

    "Very impressed how easy it was to implement illumigene Malaria in a 24h lab where a lot of different people need to be able to perform the test, especially people who don’t have any molecular experience. Prof Padalko is implementing the illumigene HSV also choose our molecular system because of the ease in use. Very interested in the upcoming CMV."
