Vista has spent considerable time and effort working to source and develop less expensive
antibodies for rapid tests.  Vista Laboratory Services, working in cooperation with Vista
Diagnostics International, has evaluated each of the antibodies we represent on our current price

For both Plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase (pLDH), and Histidine-rich protein 2 or HRPII, Vista has
recently developed a pair of antibodies to detect both Vivax and Falciparum malaria antigens.  These
antibodies have recommended pairings to achieve the highest results, but also pair with other
antibodies available.

Antibody 3H8 (Vivax capture) paired with itself, 3H8 (Vivax Detector) produces outstanding sensitivity
and specificity in Plasmodium vivax. Excellent results are also demonstrated when paired with DH60
or 4c4, both are Pan Malaria – detectors. Plasmodium falciparum is detected by pairing 4c4 with 4c8
(capture). Our strongest suggested pairing for a PAN lateral flow rapid test would be IB47 as Capture
and DH60 as the Detector.

For detection of the HRPII antigen of Plasmodium falciparum, antibody 4H48 (capture) and
4H46 (detector) produce excellent results detecting Plasmodium falciparum.
