HAT Sero K-SeT (Human African Trypanosomiasis) : How to use the test !

HAT Sero K-SeT

Coris BioConcept launched last year the HAT Sero K-SeT. This kit is used for the detection of the Human African Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), which is a life-threatening infection particularly virulent in sub-Saharan Africa.

Due to the hard working conditions scientists may face in Africa (extreme heat and humidity), this kit was specially developed to be easily used on the field. It doesn’t require power supply or any other equipment such as refrigerators which makes of HAT Sero K-Set a robust test that can stay at room temperature.


Here is below a new video showing how the HAT Sero K-SeT kit should be used.

HAT test to detect sleeping sickness – Market authorization in DRC !

Sensitivity and specificity of HAT Sero-K-SeT, a rapid diagnostic test for serodiagnosis of sleeping sickness caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense: a case-control study



Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) is a life-threatening infection affecting rural populations in sub-Saharan Africa.

Large-scale population screening by antibody detection with the Card Agglutination Test for Trypanosomiasis (CATT)/Trypanosoma brucei (T b) gambiense helped reduce the number of reported cases of gambiense HAT to fewer than 10 000 in 2011.

Because low case numbers lead to decreased cost-effectiveness of such active screening, we aimed to assess diagnostic accuracy of a rapid serodiagnostic test (HAT Sero-K-SeT) applicable in primary health-care centres.
