Chagas positive plasma added to range

Logical Biological has added Chagas antibody positive plasma to its range having received clearance from the UK government Health & Safety Executive to handle human biological material containing Trypanosoma cruzi, which is the causative agent of Chagas Disease. T. cruzi is a Hazard Group 3 pathogen according to “The Approved List of Biological Reagents”. Hazard Group 3 is defined as follows: “Can cause severe human disease and may be a serious hazard to employees; it may spread to the community, but there is usually effective prophylaxis or treatment available.”

As part of this process, the UK government has reviewed Logical Biological’s key risk assessments and standard operating procedures. Logical Biological has previously received clearance to handle human biological material infected with other Hazard Group 3 organisms such as HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Malaria (Plasmodium falciparum) and Tapeworm (Taenia solium).
