For rapid qualitative detection of both Salmonella typhi antibodies, IgG and IgM in human serum, plasma and Whole blood.
Typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever are bacterial infections caused by Salmonella Typhi and paratyphoid A, B, C respectively, which is transmitted through the ingestion of tainted food and water. World-wide an estimated 17 million cases and 600,000 associated deaths occur annually1. Patients who are infected with HIV are at significantly increased risk of clinical infection. 1- 5% of patients become chronic carriers harboring S. typhi in the gallbladder. The clinical diagnosis of infections depends on isolation of S. typhi and paratyphoid from blood, bone marrow or a specific anatomic lesion. In facilities that can not afford to perform this complicated and time-consuming procedure, Filix-Widal test is used to facilitate diagnosis. However, many limitations lead to difficulties in the interpretation of the Widal test In contrast, the Typhoid IgG/IgM2.0 Rapid Test is a simple, fast laboratory test that simultaneously detects and differentiates IgG and IgM antibodies to S. typhi and paratyphoid antigen5 thus aiding in the determination of current or previous exposure to S. typhi and paratyphoid. IgM positive or IgM /IgG both positive suggest current infection, while IgG positive suggests late stage of infection, or previous infection, or latent infection.
