Mashhour d.o.o supplies Syphilis detection latex kits and reagents including TPHA, VDRL and RPR. These Syphilis test kits identify the antibodies to the bacterium which causes syphilis in blood, fluid or tissue to help facilitate early detection and treatment of the disease.
The VDRL (Venereal disease research laboratory) test uses VDRL antigen for the detection of reagin antibodies associated with syphilis.
The RPR (Rapid plasma Reagin) test uses modified VDRL antigen containing microparticulate carbon. This aggregates in the presence of reagin type antibodies in serum or plasma. The RPR syphilis testing process requires the RPR Carbon Antigen, Carbon Kit and Positive Control to be used in conjunction.
The TPHA (Treponema pallidum haemagglutination assay) test employs preserved avian erythrocytes coated with antigens of T. pallidum, which bind with the antibodies present in patient’s serum or plasma.
