Test-it Lateral Flow Rapid Tests (RDTs) for typhoid fever in humans
Typhoid fever is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium known as Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi. The clinical presentation of typhoid fever varies from a mild illness with low-grade fever, malaise, and slight dry cough to a severe clinical picture with abdominal discomfort and multiple complications. Laboratory testing is essential because signs and symptoms may resemble those of other major infectious diseases. The Test-it™ Typhoid IgM lateral flow assay provides an indirect measure for infection through the detection of pathogen specific antibodies. Specific IgM antibodies usually develop early in the diseases. The assay is a relatively simple and rapid assay that may be used as a point-of-care test in the field or at the bed-side. It does not require special training, equipment, electricity or refrigeration. Results are obtained in 15 minutes. The assay devices and the running fluid may be stored at +4°C to +28°C.
