Trypanosoma cruzi
(parasite) 

Trypanosoma cruzi is a protozoan flagellate which belongs to the Trypanosomatidae. It is a elongated spiral shaped parasite which causes Chagas-disease in Latin America.

Trypanosoma cruzi is transmitted to humans by the faeces of the kissing bug.


For a successful inactivation of parasites, specific disinfectants effective against parasites are required.
