Introduction to, and evaluation of, immunoassays in a malaria research institute in Tanzania






Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 83(Suppl.): 99-100

Introduction to, and evaluation of, immunoassays in a malaria research institute in Tanzania

Various immunoassays have been introduced into, and evaluated at, the Amani Medical Centre in north-east Tanzania. These include immunoblotting to identify mosquito bloodmeals, immunoradiometric and immunoenzymatic assays to assess the presence of circumsporozoite protein in mosquitoes, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays to measure antibodies to circumsporozoite antibody in people. The assays were shown to be reliable and practicable for use in the study of malaria epidemiology.
