    The QBC Malaria Test is a fluorescence microscopy-based malaria diagnostic test embraced by users around the world. More sensitive than Giemsa thick films, it can detect as little as one parasite per µL of blood and establish diagnosis earlier than thick film in 47% of low parasitemia (<10 parasites per µL) cases.

    QBC Malaria Test Features:

    • Test consists of a capillary tube coated with anticoagulants and acridine orange used to stain malaria parasites for detection using fluorescence microscopy
    • Results are possible in just 8 minutes, a fraction of the time of thick film methods
    • Training time is reduced, as users with just five days of training can produce results comparable to an experienced microscopist using thick film
    • Simple set-up and review: special QBC technology uses a single capillary tube to collect, stain and process blood samples
    • Principles of centrifugation and fluorescence improve review by concentrating easily visible parasites in specific areas of the tube
    • QBC Malaria Test was the first malaria diagnostic test to receive FDA clearance
    • QBC Malaria Test is internally coated with fluorescent acridine orange stain to improve the visibility of malaria parasites; when excited by blue light (~460nm), parasites will fluoresce brightly against a dark background, as seen in the micrographs to the right
    • Concentrates 50µL blood samples, allowing users to quickly and easily see a far greater number of parasites than Giemsa tests, which use just 2µL of blood; provides unmatched results in cases of low parasitemia
    • ParaLens Advance attachment provides fluorescence capabilities to any light microscope through the use of a durable, long lasting LED light source; with simple setup and multiple power options, it can be transported wherever
    • testing is most convenient
