A rapid diagnostic for Plasmodium falciparum based on an antigen capture has been incorporated in a simple, easily interpreted dipstick by Becton Dickinson Advanced Diagnostics. In this article Clive Shiff, Japhet Minjas and Zul Premji discuss its evaluation in rural Tanzania and the implications of such a test in handling malaria cases under field conditions.
