MiraVista Diagnostics has developed a ready to use, CE marked, rapid 3-step immunochromatographic lateral flow assay (LFA) for the visual detection of Histoplasma galactomannan antigen in urine. Quick turnaround time allows for timely diagnosis and treatment.
Histoplasmosis is a systemic infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. Rapid diagnosis is important for early initiation of treatment in progressive disseminated and acute pulmonary histoplasmosis cases. Antigen detection has been proven useful for rapid diagnosis.
Testing can be performed in low complexity clinical settings with results available in 40 minutes. No pipettes or instrumentation required. Long shelf life of 24 months at 15°C-30°C. 25 tests per kit.
