    The Malarial Antigen (Vivax and Falciparum) test helps to detect malaria antigens in the blood. The malarial parasite is detected when an individual is suffering from malaria. Anopheles mosquito if infected with malaria can transfer the malarial parasite to human blood by its bite. The Malarial Antigen (Vivax and Falciparum) test is done: • In case of signs or symptoms like fever with chills, nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, and profuse sweating • As a part of fever panel check-up

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The symptoms of malaria include high fever, chills, heavy sweating, headache, nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, and pain in muscles.
    Malaria is usually caused by the bite of anopheles mosquito. However, it can also be caused by sharing needles or syringes, after an organ transplant, or after blood transfusion.
    The species of malarial parasites that infect humans include Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium malariae, Plasmodium ovale, and Plasmodium falciparum.
    No, negative malarial test results does not mean absence of malaria. Negative results can be due to the absence of malarial parasite in the peripheral smear of the blood. In such cases, re-test is advised by the doctor.
