Abstract—The present study was done to compare a rapid malaria test, Maleriscan, for the diagnosis of malaria against the peripheral blood smear examination. Blood samples from 1000 patients suspected of having malaria were obtained. The peripheral blood smears were stained with Leishman's stain and all the blood samples were subjected to card test according to manufacturers' instructions. A total of 150 samples were positive by blood smear examination while 142 were positive by pan-malaria antigen card test. The assay had sensitivity of 94.6% and specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value were 99.7%, 98.6% and 99.0% respectively. The pan-malaria antigen card test can be used as single or in combination with conventional blood smear examination for detection of malarial parasite and for early diagnosis of malaria. 

Index Terms—malaria, peripheral blood film, rapid test
