    What is a Typhidot Test?

    Typhoid fever is a common infection caused by the Salmonella typhi bacterium. The Typhidot test is a diagnostic blood test that helps in identifying typhoid fever. It detects the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies produced by the immune system in response to the bacterium. Commonly known as the Typhidot rapid IgG/IgM test, this test involves taking a small blood sample and placing it on an antigen-coated strip that interacts with these antibodies. The test results show whether the antibodies are present, helping in the diagnosis of typhoid fever. The test is valued for its simplicity, quick results, and reliability in diagnosing typhoid infections.

    For those seeking to confirm the diagnosis of typhoid fever in Gurgaon, the Typhidot IgM test or Typhidot rapid IgG/IgM can be performed at Orange Health Labs in Gurgaon.

    Typhidot Test Parameters

    The Typhidot test assesses two main parameters, the levels of antibodies IgG and IgM that are crucial for diagnosing and monitoring typhoid fever infection.

    IgG Antibodies

    This parameter is assessed to detect a past or chronic typhoid infection. IgG antibodies are produced after an initial immune response and can last up to two years in the bloodstream. The test parameter reveals either a recent or past episode of typhoid fever and provides valuable insights into the immune history regarding the disease. Tracking IgG antibody levels helps assess the disease progression and development of immunity against the bacterium.

    IgM Antibodies

    IgM antibodies are detected against the S. typhi bacteria during an early stage of infection. Measuring this parameter allows us to detect the acute stage of typhoid fever infection. The IgM antibodies typically emerge as part of the initial immune response to the bacterial attack, serving as indicators of recent exposure to the bacteria. Doctors utilise this parameter to detect active infections early so that appropriate treatment can be started quickly, and worsening of the infection can be prevented.

    Typhidot Test Preparation

    Consider the following pre-requisites before undergoing the Typhidot blood test in Gurgaon:


    No need to fast before the Typhidot test. If there are any additional guidelines from your doctor, consider them before getting tested.

    Best Time to Get Tested

    For accurate results, you will need to get tested 2-3 days after symptoms of typhoid fever appear. Initial symptoms include persistent high fever, chills, constipation, fatigue, body aches, cough, and headache. Later, these may develop into abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhoea, and rash.

    Who Should Do the Test?

    The test is usually recommended for those with symptoms of typhoid fever.

    Cautions to Take Before the Test

    There are no major precautions required before the test.

    Why Take a Typhidot Test?

    The Typhidot IgM test is critical for detecting typhoid fever early and enabling timely treatment to prevent serious complications. It’s an easy, reliable, and affordable test that detects infection within 2-3 days and is essential in typhoid-endemic regions and during outbreaks. The test provides quick and accurate results, supporting effective disease control and enhancing public health strategies.

    Typhidot Test Results & Interpretation

    A positive result on the Typhidot test implies exposure to the typhoid bacteria, indicating a potential current or recent infection. A negative result means no antibodies against typhoid were detected. Yet, this does not conclusively exclude typhoid infection, as the antibody levels might be insufficient, or the test might have been conducted before antibody development. If symptoms of typhoid fever continue, your doctor might recommend re-testing or additional testing, such as a blood culture, to check for the presence of typhoid bacteria directly in your blood.
