The ELISA Reader or Microplate Reader is a microprocessor-controlled, general purpose photometer system designed to read and calculate the result of assays, which are read in a microtiter plate. The ELISA Washer or Microplate washer is designed to wash the microwells as a part of the ELISA testing process. The performance of the ELISA test […]

How Accurate is Tri Dot Testing?

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), the primary agent of AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency syndrome) attacks our immune system and is transmitted through infected blood from person to person. Hepatitis C Virus causes Hepatitis, liver infection and can lead to death if not diagnosed and treated on time.In individuals infected with HIV or HCV, Testing is performed using […]

Article On Vector-Borne Disease

Vector-borne diseases are among the most critical global public health problems. They are associated with severe human morbidity and mortality, leading to a significant economic burden in affected countries. Vector-borne diseases are caused by viruses, parasites, and bacteria transmitted by vectors such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas that spread pathogens.

Significance Of Covid Antigen Test

The epidemic of Covid-19 is attributed to the spreading virus spurred on by asymptomatic characteristics of the disease and late appearances of symptoms due to a long incubation period. Asymptomatic cases may be diagnosed on the onset of the disease and earlier symptoms appearing during the course of the disease also gives a credible opportunity […]

Mapping vectors and Disease Transmission: The Malaria Diagnostic Survey

Malaria is a parasitic disease caused by the parasite Plasmodium (Protozoan parasite) with high mortality rates. The disease vector is the female Anopheles mosquito. The two notable species most prevalent in India are P.vivax and P.falciparum. The infection with P.falciparum is the most deadly form of Malaria.

Post COVID Surveillance of Vector-Borne Diseases and Diagnostic Management

The epidemiology, surveillance, diagnosis, and treatment of vector-borne diseases are critical in India. National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) is the apex government body. It handles the annual programs and implements strategies. In addition, many global initiatives are also creating public awareness for improving lifestyle, hygiene, and living conditions.

Closing the gap in Surveillance and Treatment in Malaria: The Diagnostic Approach

In India, P.vivax and P.falciparum cause the bulk of Malarial infections. While P.vivax is more in the plains, P.falcipraum is prominent more in the forest and peripheral regions. As a result, the central India region and North Eastern states have high transmission of Malaria compared to other areas. Rugged geographical terrain, regional conflicts, and inadequate […]

Cross Infection of Malaria and Dengue: Choosing the correct Diagnosis

Both Malaria and Dengue are endemic mosquito-borne diseases. They bring in high rates of mortality and morbidity. Their co-infection poses a worldwide public health problem. With the increase in ease of globalized travel, the risk has coupled over the years. Concurrent infections of Malaria and Dengue occur with their own set of complications. Due to […]
