DESCRIPTION

Syphilis is a veneral disease that progresses through distinct stages of infection: primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary. These stages produce diverse clinical symptoms, typically producing initial sores known as chancres then syphilitic rash followed by long periods of dormancy. Untreated infection eventually leads to cardiovascular problems and neurosyphilis.

Caused by spirochaete Treponema pallidum (TP), the infection is usually acquired by sexual contact, although the disease may be transmitted by transfusion of infected blood. Intrauterine infection also occurs. The organism has proved virtually impossible to culture in artificial media, and diagnosis of the infection usually depends on the detection of antibodies in the blood, which appear soon after initial infection.

Veneris Rapid Test for Syphilis is a highly specific immunological rapid test for the detection of anti-TP antibodies with a fingerprich whole blood sample.

Frequently asked questions

When present in the body, TP induce the production of specific antibodies by the immune system. These circulating antibodies are able to recognize the spirochaete and to stick on them. Veneris test detects specifically these anti-TP antibodies in blood and therefore shows the spirochaete presence.

Veneris Rapid Test should be performed in case of appearance of clinical symptoms, the main ones being chancres and specific rash. The test can be performed at anytime of the day.

The results are accurate as far as the instructions are carefully respected. Nevertheless, the result can be incorrect if Veneris Rapid Test for Syphilis gets wet before test performing or if the quantity of blood added to the sample well is not correct. The dropper provided in the box allows making sure the collected blood volume is correct. Very early stage of the infection could also lead to negative results due to the low concentration of anti TP antibodies in blood.

The colour and intensity of the lines have no importance for result interpretation. The lines should only be homogeneous and clearly visible. The test should be considered as positive whatever the colour intensity of the test lines.

When this line appears, it only means that the test was performing well.

No. The test should be read within 10 minutes after adding the diluent. The result is reliable up to 15 minutes.

If the result is positive, it means that anti-TP antibodies are present in blood and that you should consult a doctor to show the test results. Then, the doctor will decide whether additional investigation should be performed.

If the result is negative, it means that the test could not detect anti-TP antibodies in blood sample. Meanwhile it is recommended to consult a doctor if symptoms persist.
