What is QBC and how is it performed?
The Quantative Buffy Coat (QBC) is an Acridine Orange fluorescence staining method, used as a preliminary screening tool for the diagnosis of malaria. This fast, inexpensive technique is more sensitive than the examination of Giemsa-stained slides. by the Acridine Orange acts as an internal control.
What is QBC test?
The quantitative buffy coat (QBC) method is used to identify malaria parasites in peripheral blood by staining the DNA of parasites with acridine orange. QBC was found to be able to detect malaria in samples with low parasite numbers, as low as 5 parasites/μl blood .
What is the use of QBC test?
Quantitative buffy coat (QBC) analysis, which is based on principle of centrifugal stratification of blood components, is a well-known and a very sensitive technique which can be used for the detection of malarial parasites in peripheral blood.
How is QBC test done?
Principle: QBC for detecting malaria parasites is based on using specialized capillary tube containing a plastic float. Blood containing capillaries are centrifuged at high speed for 5 minutes.
How is QBC test performed?
The QBC Malaria Test utilizes patented technology to improve sample collection and review for users. The Test features a 50 µL blood tube that can be used to collect either capillary or venous blood samples. All necessary stains and reagents are contained within the tube itself, simplifying specimen processing.
What is the full form of QBC?
Abstract. Quantitative buffy coat (QBC) analysis, which is based on principle of centrifugal stratification of blood components, is a well-known and a very sensitive technique which can be used for the detection of malarial parasites in peripheral blood.
Why We Do MP test?
why get tested? Individuals infected with malaria are generally very ill with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like symptoms and malaise. The most commonly used tests to detect the malaria parasite are: Malarial Parasite by Smear Examination (Blood)
