INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Positive: Two burgundy colored lines appear, one in the Control region (C) and one in the Test region (T). A positive result indicates presence of P. falciparumhistidine-rich protein II (PfHRP-II), which is present in infected red blood cells.
Negative: One burgundy colored line appears in the Control Region (C), with no apparent line in the Test Region (T). A negative result indicates there is no presence of PfHRP-II.
Invalid: No burgundy colored lines appear, or a line appears in the Test Region (T) but not in the Control Region (C). An invalid result may be due to improper testing procedures or deterioration of the test components. Repeat the assay sequence using a new device.
