Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite that infects most species of warm-blooded animals, including humans, and causes the disease toxoplasmosis. In humans, T. gondii is one of the most common parasites in developed countries, serological studies estimate that 30–50% of the global population has been exposed to and may be chronically infected with T. gondii, although infection rates differ significantly from country to country. Recently, lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay, such as The Toxo IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette was introduced into the clinic for the serodiagnosis of T. gondii infection.
