What is VDRL test?
The Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) is a test to screen for Syphilis. Syphilis is a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), which can be detected by the VDRL test. This test detects antibodies produced by the body in response to the antigens produced by the cells damaged by the bacteria Treponema pallidum. A positive VDRL test will be followed by the TPHA (Treponema pallidum Haemagglutination) test and the Syphilis card test.
