The rapid antigen test is a type of viral screening that looks for specific viral proteins of SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory samples
This makes an important difference from rapid tests based on antibody detection: the antigen detection in a respiratory sample allows to identify a likely positive result in the early stages of the disease. Depending on the patient´s viral load, this could mean from 2-3 days before the appearance of symptoms to 5-7 days afterwards.
Monlab participated in the eighth edition of Medic West Africa in Lagos (Nigeria), last October 9th to 11th. During these days, the show gathered over 280 local and international exhibitors (including Monlab) coming from more than 25 countries. This year, Medic West Africa has brought the latest innovations in healthcare and laboratory products.
Monlab would like to thank all the customers and colleagues that visited our booth.
We are pleased to present Monlab´s new export catalogue. It has been totally re-designed, translated into three languages and updated with new product launches.
In this new version we wanted to transmit all our “Passion” for our work and the laboratory sector. After 35 years serving laboratories, we keep the same enthusiasm of the first day!
One-step immunochromatographic test for the detection of Cryptosporidium, Giardia Lamblia and Entamoeba antigens in stool samples.
Cryptosporidium parvum, Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba histolytica are three of the principal protozoo groups which cause gastro-intestinal infections.
• Cryptosporidiosis is a protozoal infection caused by Cryptosporidium parvum in human. Typically, is an acute short-term infection but can become severe and non-resolving in children and immunocompromised individuals such as aids patients. It is may also be asymptomatic. In tropical developing countries, the parasite is often endemic and causes diarrhoea epidemics among children. With immunocompetent patients, the disease manifests itself as self-healing gastroenteritis.
Monlab presents the new version of the Skanflexi® X500 reader which includes test reading and incubation. It is of great help for a rapid and automated analysis.
It has a new test/strip placement system, which will limit contamination risk and the need of cleaning, in addition to be very user friendly.
SkanFlexi® X500 supports USB printers, barcode scanners and the ability to export results via USB flash drive or wired or wireless network connections.
It is also compatible with our entire catalogue of rapid tests, in individual/multiple cassettes and strips.
At Monlab we are pleased to present our new one step immunochromatographic test for the simultaneous qualitative detection of Rotavirus, Adenovirus and Norovirus (GI, GII) in human stool samples.
Our rapid test is based on the immunological capture of colored microparticles as they pass through a membrane with specific monoclonal antibodies against Rotavirus, Adenovirus and Norovirus (GI, GII), in four separate lines.
On the occasion of the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan 2015, the brothers Iván and Xavier Aracil are setting on a 30-day journey to Yokohama on their 1953 Citroen.
Monlab accompanies them in this new adventure with its logo on each side of the car.
We wish them every success in this challenge!
