- The Alinity s Chagas assay is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay (CMIA) used for the qualitative detection of antibodies to T. cruzi (the causative agent of Chagas disease) in human serum and plasma specimens on the Alinity s System. The Alinity s Chagas assay is intended to screen individual human donors, including volunteer donors of whole blood and blood components, and other living donors for the presence of antibodies to T. cruzi. The assay is also intended for use in testing serum and plasma specimens to screen organ donors when specimens are obtained while the donor’s heart is still beating, and in testing serum specimens to screen cadaveric (non-heart-beating) donors. It is not intended for use on cord blood specimens.
