ADVANTAGES  OF  SEVA
FILACHEK (IgG & Ag)

* NO NEED OF TEDIOUS NIGHT BLOOD COLLECTION

* DAY TIME BLOOD CAN BE USED

* BLOOD COLLECTED ON FILTER PAPER BY FINGER PRICK MAY BE USED

*  USEFUL FOR DETECTION OF MICROFILARAEMIA, EARLY CLINICAL
    FILARIASIS AND OCCULT INFECTIONS

*  USEFUL IN IMMUNOMONITORING OF FILARIAL INFECTION FOR
    APPROPRIATE PERIOD OF CHEMOTHERAPY FOR CURE
