Filarial Testing Services

Filariasis is a chronic parasitic disease caused by filarial parasites in lymphatic, subcutaneous, abdominal and cardiovascular tissues. In the early stage, the main manifestations are lymphangitis and lymphadenitis; in the late stage, a series of symptoms and signs caused by the obstruction of lymphatic vessels appear. Experimental diagnosis is based on the detection of microfilariae in blood or skin tissue. The main sources of infection for this disease are patients with microfilariae in their blood and asymptomatic carriers. Humans are the only final and reservoir hosts for B. bancrofti. filarial parasites can also be found in mammals such as monkeys, cats and nails, which can serve as the main reservoir hosts and may be the source of infection.

Ace Therapeutics specializes in parasitology research and has established a parasite testing technology platform to provide high quality filarial testing services. Our goal is to provide assistance and accelerate research in filarial testing for filarial researchers around the world.

Service Options for Filarial Testing

Ace Therapeutics provides high quality filarial testing services, service options include, but is not limited to:

Pathogenetic testing service for filarial
  • Microfilariae detection in blood: because of the nocturnal cycle, the time of blood collection is 9:00 pm. to 2:00 am. (Fresh blood method, smear method, concentration method, microporous membrane filtration method)
  • Microfilariae detection in body fluids: microfilariae are detected in urine, sphincter fluid, lymphatic fluid, ascites and celiac urine.
  • Adult filarial worms detection in tissue biopsy: take biopsy from epididymal nodes, subcutaneous nodes, or lymph nodes to find adult filarial worms; or see filarial cross-sections in pathological tissue sections.
Immunological testing service for filarial
  • Intradermal test
  • Complement binding test
  • Rapid immunochromatographic assay for filarial antigens
  • Enzyme-linked immunoassay for filarial specific antibody lgG
Molecular biology testing service for filarial
  • Specific DNA probes assay
