Taxonomy: f. Plasmodidae
Animal: Plasmodium vivax (research) 1 11.jpg
Sites: Blood
Plasmodium vivax infected thick film - Field's stain 2 seconds A , 2 seconds B. Compare with other Plasmodium vivax (research) slides which have been prepared using different staining methods to determine the best method to diagnose the parasite infection. This stain is almost good as the method using Giemsa stain 1 in 25 for 25 minutes (with no fixation, smear allowed to dry in the air) in which the malarial parasites are clearly seen against a pale clean background (- see slide 1 09) but the Fields stain is not as sharp.
