Oxoid offers convenient tests for confirmation of syphilis
Amidst the increasing incidence of syphilis in the UK1 Thermo Scientific Limited offers clinical laboratories convenient tools for the reliable diagnosis of syphilis infection.
The Thermo Scientific VDRL Carbon Antigen Test (DR525M) is a rapid agglutination test that detects reagin antibodies (found in active disease) in serum or plasma in just 8 minutes. The Thermo Scientific TPHA Test (DR0530M) is a sensitive passive haemagglutination test, that detects specific Treponema pallidum antibodies in serum within one hour. Used in combination, the Thermo Scientific VDRL and TPHA Tests provide accurate and reliable confirmation of active syphilis infection. No specialised equipment is required and results are clearly visible and easily interpreted.
