Collection: Candida Test Kits

Candida albicans test kit

Candida test kits are simple, easy-to-use tests that can help you determine if you have a candida infection. This rapid test kit is designed to identify Candida albicans antigens from vaginal swabs, helping individuals and healthcare professionals diagnose Candida infections quickly.


Candida is a type of fungus that lives in our bodies and is normally harmless. Candida albicans is a type of yeast that can opportunistically become pathogenic in certain circumstances. While it typically resides as a harmless member of the human gut flora, it can pose health risks, especially to individuals with compromised immune systems. However, in certain situations, candida can grow out of control and cause infections. These infections can range from mild to severe, and can occur in different parts of the body such as the mouth, throat, genitals, and skin. If you suspect that you may have a candida infection, it's important to get an accurate diagnosis so that you can receive appropriate treatment. One way to do this is by using candida test kits, which are now available at ValueMed.

Tha ALLTEST Candida test kit

The Candida albicans Antigen Detection Test (Vaginal Swab) employs a qualitative immunoassay method using a membrane-based approach to identify Candida albicans antigens. The test involves the visual interpretation of color development on an internal strip. Within the test region of the membrane, anti-Candida albicans antibodies are immobilized.

During the testing process, the specimen from the vaginal swab reacts with anti-Candida albicans antibodies that are conjugated to coloured particles present on the label pad of the test. Capillary action facilitates the migration of this mixture through the membrane, allowing it to interact with specific reagents.

If the specimen contains sufficient Candida albicans antigens, a distinct coloured line will appear at the test region of the membrane. The presence of this coloured line indicates a positive result, signifying the likely presence of a Candida infection. Conversely, the absence of this line suggests a negative result, indicating a lower probability of  candida infection.

Home and professional candida antigen test kits

At ValueMed, we offer both home candida test kits and bulk packs of professional candida test kits. The vaginal candida tests are easy to use and provide accurate results in just a few minutes. The Candida albicans thrush test is designed to detect the presence of candida albicans, which is the most common type of candida that causes infections. The test is very easy to use and provides reliable results in just a few minutes.
