What does Scrub Typhus IgG & IgM Antibodies, Rapid measure?

Contains 2 tests

A Scrub Typhus IgG & IgM Antibodies, Rapid test detects scrub typhus infection and determines whether an individual is currently infected (indicated by IgM antibodies) or was infected in the past (indicated by IgG antibodies). When the body is infected with the scrub typhus infection, it defends itself by producing two types of antibodies in sequence: IgM and IgG. Usually, IgM antibodies are the first to appear post infection while IgG antibodies appear in a later stage and persist for an extended period. This way, the immune system responds initially with IgM antibodies and later with IgG antibodies for long-term immunity against scrub typhus.
