We offer antibodies which detect several flagellated protozoan species, commonly referred to as zooflagellates, and classified within the group called Sarcomastigophora. Our products include antibodies for Trypanosoma, Giardia, Trichomonas, and Leishmania parasites. These protozoans are involved in a wide variety of human diseases.
Protozoans are challenging to research due to their complex life cycles. Their life cycle stage often requires an alternative cultivation, diagnosis, and target antigens. This makes the selection of the correct antibody even more important. Please contact our Technical Support team if you require any help or advice.
Trypanosoma are flagellated protozoa which have a cork screw movement. They infect a variety of hosts and cause diseases such as sleeping sickness and Chagas disease.
Giardi lamblia is a flagellated protozoan which colonizes the small intestine causing giardiasis. Giardia infections usually occur through the ingestion of microbial cysts from contaminated water or food.
Trichomonas vaginalis is a flagellated anaerobic protozoan which causes the sexually transmitted infection trichomoniasis (vaginitis).
Leishmania is a parasite protozoan which causes the disease leishmaniasis, which is typically spread via a sand fly vector.
