Standard Diagnostics/Alere FIND SD Bioline HAT 2.0

Standard Diagnostics/Alere and FIND launched SD Bioline HAT 2.0, a rapid diagnostic test for human African trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sickness. The immunochromatographic rapid test detects antibodies against Trypanosoma brucei gambiense, the parasite that is responsible for more than 98 percent of sleeping sickness cases. The test can be performed by health workers with minimal training, using fresh blood from a finger prick, and results can be obtained in about 15 minutes.
