Tubex® TF


TUBEX® TF is a 10 minute semi-quantitative in vitro diagnostic serum assay for the detection of current typhoid fever caused by Salmonella typhi. A positive TUBEX® TF result, together with clinical symptoms of typhoid fever, is a strong indication of a typhoid infection.



TUBEX® TF specifically detects IgM antibodies to the S. typhi O9 lipopolysaccharide antigen. This antigen is highly specific to S. typhi and other Salmonella serogroup D bacteria by its extremely rare sugar (α-D-tyvelose). IgM anti-O9 antibodies are normally not present in healthy individuals.
