Performance of Whatman 3MM as a storage media for gametocyte mRNA. Percentage of mRNA amplification in 10, 1.0 and 0.1 gametocyte/μl dilutions, determined by QT-NASBA (open bars) and RT-PCR (hatched bars), when stored on the Whatman 3MM filter paper, incubated under different conditions for up to thirteen weeks. The background blue to pink colour gradient represents the severity of the incubation condition (from cold to warm, respectively).
