Polymerase chain reaction and blood culture in blood donors screened by ELISA test for Chagas’ disease

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate, through blood culture and PCR, the results of the ELISA for Chagas’ disease in the screening of blood donors in the public blood-supply network of the state of Paraná, Brazil, and to map the epidemiological profile of the donors with respect to their risk of infection by Trypanosoma cruzi. The negative and… (More)
