There are two types of serological test for syphilis, non-treponemal and treponemal.  Treponemal tests measure antibodies to native (Nichols strain) or recombinant Treponemal Pallidum antigens 1. This automated assay is based on a latex immunoturbidimetric test principle.

  • Fully automated methodology, improving the accuracy, precision and consistency of results.
  • Fast results (10 minute assay)… ideal for screening.
  • Definitive quantitative result.
  • Good correlation with traditional methods (TPHA) … confidence in results.
