The Brugia Rapid test has been shown to be a useful and sensitive tool for the detection of Brugia malayi and Brugia timori antibodies and is being used widely by lymphatic filariasis elimination programs in Brugia spp. endemic areas. Although the test is relatively simple to use, adequate training is necessary to reduce inter-observer variability and to reduce the misreading of cassettes.
