Molecular xenomonitoring of trypanosomes in tsetse flies
Monitoring trypanosomes infections in wild-caught tsetse flies in a given area, is important in prediction of epidemic outbreaks and spread of disease, and could help focus control programs for areas requiring immediate attention in order to limit disease transmission and spread. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the recently developed RIME LAMP and PanTryp LAMP for screening large numbers of tsetse flies...
