Syphilis is a disease caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum (Nichols strain, TP). Currently, two methods are available for serological testing for syphilis: a method using lipid antigens, such as cardiolipin (STS) and a method using TP antigens. As test results differ between these two methods depending on the stage, both are performed in conjunction to detect infection or to diagnose the disease state.
SEKISUI MEDICAL's "MEDIACE TPLA " and "MEDIACE RPR" are the world's first diagnostic reagents for syphilis on a fully automated system. These reagents are used to rapidly measure serum anti-TP antibodies and syphilitic antilipid antibodies using particles of artificial carrier latex with a measurement principle based on latex turbidimetry.
