Fungal Infection Serological Assays

Platelia Aspergillus Ag Assay


Platelia Aspergillus Ag Assay:
Screen, Diagnose, and Monitor High-Risk Patients

The Platelia Aspergillus Ag assay is a unique, high-performance tool for Galactomannan antigen detection enabling physicians to screen, monitor, and diagnose invasive aspergillosis and rapidly provide the antifungal treatment patients need.

  • Galactomannan antigen detection (Platelia Aspergillus Ag) is among the mycological criteria defined by the EORTC/MSG Consensus Group
  • Monitors the efficacy of antifungal treatment for invasive aspergillo sis in high-risk patients
  • Non-invasive procedure performed in serum allows for twice-weekly screening of high-risk patients
