Minimising invasiveness in diagnostics: developing a rapid urine ‐based monoclonal antibody dipstick test for malaria

ConclusionMAb UCP4W7 seems promising for diagnosing Plasmodium infection. Urine is a reliable biomarker source for developing non‐invasive malaria diagnostic tests. SDS‐PAGE and MAb‐based WBA appear explorable in assays for detecting different levels of Plasmodium parasitaemia.
