The ASI RPR Card Test
is an 8 minute macroscopic nontreponemal flocculation test for the detection of reagin. The microparticulate carbon RPR antigen enhances the visual discrimination between reactive and nonreactive results. The reagin antibody binds with the antigen that is composed of a complex of cardiolipin, lecithin and cholesterol particles with activated charcoal; the result of this antigen-antibody reaction is macroscopic flocculation. 500 test per box.
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease. It is the third most common disease on the CDC’s reportable disease list. Syphilis is endemic worldwide and fatal if left untreated. Treponema pallidum, the etiological agent of syphilis, induces the production of at least two types of antibody in human infection; anti-treponemal antibody that can be detected by the FTA-ABS test, and anti-nontreponemal antibody (reagin) that is detected using the Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) test.
