Lorne Labs supplies Syphilis detection latex kits and reagents including TPHA, VDRL and RPR. These Syphilis test kits identify the antibodies to the bacterium which causes syphilis in blood, fluid or tissue to help facilitate early detection and treatment of the disease.
The VDRL (Venereal disease research laboratory) test uses VDRL antigen for the detection of reagin antibodies associated with syphilis.
The RPR (Rapid plasma Reagin) test uses modified VDRL antigen containing microparticulate carbon. This aggregates in the presence of reagin type antibodies in serum or plasma. The RPR syphilis testing process requires the RPR Carbon Antigen, Carbon Kit and Positive Control to be used in conjunction.
The TPHA (Treponema pallidum haemagglutination assay) test employs preserved avian erythrocytes coated with antigens of T. pallidum, which bind with the antibodies present in patient’s serum or plasma.

Lorne Labs are suppliers of Syphilis kits and reagents for medical professionals, governments, blood transfusion professionals, and hospital laboratories. The kits include TPHA reagent, VDRL reagent and RPR (Rapid plasma reagin) reagent. These Syphilis test kits identify the antibodies to the bacterium which causes syphilis in fresh serum or plasma to help facilitate early detection and treatment of the disease.
VDRL, RPR and TPHA Syphilis Test Kits
The VDRL reagent test kits (Venereal disease research laboratory) contain stabilised uses VDRL antigen. The VDRL antigen detects Reagin antibodies, which are antibodies produced by the human body, against substances released by cells (such as the heart and the liver) that are damaged by the Syphilis organism.
The RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) Syphilis test uses RPR Carbon antigen which is an ethanolic solution containing cholesterol, bovine heart cardiolipin, lecithin and microparticulate carbon. The RPR Carbon antigen aggregates in the presence of Reagin antibodies in serum or plasma The RPR test enables confirmation of an active infection before starting treatment,. RPR tests are also commonly used to check the on-going treatment of a Syphilis infection.
The TPHA test for syphilis (Treponema pallidum haemagglutination assay) employs preserved avian erythrocytes coated with antigens of T. pallidum, which bind with TP antibodies present in patient’s serum or plasma. TPHA is an indirect hemagglutination test for qualitative and semi-quantitative detection of TP antibodies, no agglutination generally indicates absence of TP antibodies. Reagents are supplied at optimal dilution.
