sl01.jpg (10824 bytes)The Macro-Vue Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) tests are being offered for syphilis screening. The kits come with 18mm circle card tests and teardrop tests for the serological detection of syphilis. The tests include a quantitative procedure that helps differentiate active infection from cases of effective therapy.
     Consequently, the tests can also be used to monitor therapeutic effectiveness. Lypholized control cards, liquid controls, antigen suspension reagents and testing components may be purchased separately. Test cards are available in 10, 15 and 30 spot cards.
