Malaria is a deadly disease that is responsible for the deaths of many people across the globe, killing over 1 million people each year. Research shows that the most fatal type of malaria is caused by Plasmodium falciparum parasite. It is estimated that over half a million people across the globe get infected with malaria annually. In the year 2010 alone, the World Health Organization(WHO) reported 655,000 deaths.

Malaria, if diagnosed at an early stage can be treated effectively. Doctors have come up with malaria test kits which are not only accurate, but are also affordable to most people and can easily diagnose the presence of this deadly parasite.

You can also keep malaria at bay by implementing simple remedies at home. You can buy powerful mosquito repellent creams, have a mosquito net over your bed and also get rid of nearby bushes or stagnant water that offer rich breeding grounds for mosquitoes. If you are going to travel to malaria prone geographic area, you need to carry enough anti-malaria medication and take the required dose as prescribed.

Accurate Diagnosis Using QBC Malaria Test Kits
When malaria is detected at an early stage, proper treatment can be administered to help prevent death. Usually, malaria is diagnosed and managed using a microscope,diagnostic tests, and effective medicines. A proper diagnosis means proper clinical laboratory diagnostics equipment. The QBC malaria test kits from QBC Diagnostics are very effective in identifying the presence of malaria parasites in centrifuged capillary venous blood.

minute examination of blood suspected to be infected with the malaria parasite.

-The QBC diagnostics test kit is more sensitive than the conventional testing method.

-The test kit is convenient in that the components of the test kit do not require any special controlled test environment or refrigeration facilities.
