Chagas disease is a vector-borne parasitic and potentially life-threatening illness caused by the protozoa Trypanosoma cruzi. The disease is endemic in South and Central America with 6 to 7 million people estimated to be infected worldwide.

altona Diagnostics developed the RealStar® Chagas PCR Kit 1.0 for the qualitative detection of Trypanosoma cruzi specific DNA. The reagent system is based on real-time reverse transcriptase/polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technology and contains an Internal Control for reliable diagnostics. First results were represented at ECCMID in April 2017. The RealStar® Chagas PCR Kit 1.0 will be launched in June as RUO kit version and in Q1 next year as CE kit version.
