agalactiae from clinical samples. The isolation procedure requires specialized technical personnel, high investment and long time for conclusion.

cruzi are usually detectable within a few days of infection and can persist for life. Commonly used serological tests include the Indirect immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and indirect haemagglutination assay (IHA). Most of these tests use lysates of the epimastigote form of the parasite as target antigens but several are based on recombinant proteins.
