Understanding Malarial Antigen (Vivax & Falciparum) Detection in Pune


What is Malarial Antigen (Vivax & Falciparum) Detection in Pune?

The Malarial Antigen (Vivax & Falciparum) Detection test screens for specific malarial antigens in the blood associated with two common types of malarial parasites: Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum. This test aids in the identification of malarial infections by detecting the proteins produced by these two parasites. It is available at an affordable price with Tata 1mg labs in Pune.

Your doctor may recommend this test if you experience symptoms suggestive of malaria, such as fever, chills, and flu-like symptoms, especially after potential exposure to malaria-endemic areas. Additionally, travelers to such regions should consider this test, even if the symptoms have not yet manifested after waiting at least a week or two after potential exposure as it allows sufficient time for parasites to replicate, making them detectable by the Malarial Antigen (Vivax & Falciparum) Detection test. No fasting is required for this test; you can eat or drink as per your routine.
