- RelevanceTrypanosoma cruzi, better known as T. cruzi, is a deadly parasite that causes Chagas’ disease. TcF is an artificially engineered recombinant antigen which contains tandem sequences of different T. cruzi-specific peptides. It can be used to detect specific antibodies in nearly all patients infected with T. cruzi, and avoids many of the problems of false positivity and unreliability associated with older assays that used whole organisms for antibody detection.
