Leptospirosis is an infectious, zoonotic disease which can cause severe symptoms and death. The disease can present with a wide variety of clinical signs, often indistinguishable from other acute bacterial and viral infections. Leptospiral infections are usually derived from exposure to water, soil or vegetation contaminated with the urine of infected animals. In many parts of the world the disease is an environmental and an occupational hazard. Rapid diagnosis is essential to early response, treatment and control.
Leptorapide® is a simple, accurate, one-step test that detects the presence of Leptospira-specific antibodies in human sera in less than 5 minutes. The kit consists of an antigenic bead complex. On mixing with positive sera interlinking of the beads occurs, visible as agglutination. A positive/negative result can be determined using the agglutination scale below.
