Meridian Bioscience Alethia® Malaria
Molecular assay for the detection of Plasmodium sp. Alethia provides a quick, accurate and reliable molecular assay for Plasmodium sp. detection.
THE BETTER WE ARE AT DETECTING MALARIA, THE BETTER OUR ODDS OF BEATING IT. FOR GOOD.
Approximately 219 million cases of malaria still occurred worldwide1 and diagnostic testing and treatment is a key component of malaria control in either endemic and non-endemic areas. When malaria claims one life every minute, it’s time to change the way you test!
Prompt diagnosis and treatment is the most effective way to prevent a mild case of malaria from developing into severe disease and death
- Let your labs screen negative results with confidence. Alethia Malaria has an analytical sensitivity of up to 80,000x more than conventional methods
- Avoid delays in treatment with quick and precise results in less than one hour
Revolutionize your laboratory’s diagnostic accuracy with molecular performance
- With no special training or technical expertise required, Alethia Malaria provides your laboratory with a simple yet affordable molecular assay readily deployable in the field.
Results That Matter
- Alethia Malaria allows for the direct detection of Plasmodium spp. (P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, P. malariae, and P. knowlesi), with up to 1,500x better analytical sensitivity than microscopy2,3 and up to 80,000x better analytical sensitivity than RDT’s
- Remove the human subjectivity from malaria diagnosis
Fast & Streamlined
- The molecular precision of Alethia Malaria eliminates the need for repeat tests, allowing you to save time and money in the laboratory.
- Deliver a timely result with a simple 2 minute sample preparation from whole blood, and 40 minutes of amplification time.
