Hello Imas,

Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Community

TPHA and VDRL are laboratory tests to determine whether a person is infected with syphilis or the "Lion King" caused by the Treponema pallidum bacteria.

VDRL (venereal disease research laboratory) is a nontreponemal screening test to measure the antibodies (IgG and IgM) that the body produces as a result of cell damage caused by bacteria.

TPHA (Treponema pallidum Hemagglutination Assay) is a serological test used to detect antibodies against the Treponema pallidum bacteria. TPHA is suitable as a confirmatory test for suspected syphilis infection because it is specific. In the TPHA examination, serum or plasma will be taken from the patient's body.

The method used in TPHA is indirect hemaagglutination or indirect hemaagglutination which is used to detect specific antibodies against Treponema pallidium. The TPHA examination procedure is carried out in two ways, namely qualitative procedures and quantitative procedures.

This is the information we can convey, thank you, hope it helps.

Regards,

dr. Rizki
