Intended Use:

Test for determination of RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagins) in human serum by Slide Test method.


Reagins are a group of antibodies against some components of the damage tissues from patients infected by Treponema pallidum, the agent which causes the syphilis. This microorganism produces some damage to the liver and heart, releasing some tissue fragments. Immunological patient system reacts producing reagins, antibodies against these fragments.

RPR Carbon Antigen Test Procedure

Method Principle:

The RPR Syphilis screening test is a macroscopic non-treponemal flocculation card test for detection and to quantify reagin, an antibody like substrate present in serum or plasma and spinal fluid from syphilitic persons.
