  1. aTwo samples were SRA-PCR positive. bSix samples were positive for Trypanozoon by KIN-PCR and PFR-LAMP; 3 SRA- PCR positive; 1 TviCatL-PCR positive. cTwo samples were SRA-PCR positive. dThese were same samples. eThis was the same SRA-PCR and TviCatL-PCR positive sample. fOne sample tested positive for both T. congolense Savannah and Kilifi type. gOne sample also tested positive for T. congolenseSavannah type
