Researchers from de Universitat de Barcelona and Universitat de les Illes Balears (Spain) presented a report with the successful application of vPCR in the detection of Trypanosoma cruzi. This paper develops the results previously reported by these authors in the XIX meeting of the Spanish Society of Parasitology (July 2015), and shows a potential method of parasite viability assessment and quantification.
