From: Magnetic isolation of Plasmodium falciparum schizonts iRBCs to generate a high parasitaemia and synchronized in vitro culture

Figure 1

Isolation of schizonts enriched Plasmodium falciparum infected red blood cells with vario mac magnetic columns. A. Culture of mature forms of P. falciparum iRBC previously synchronized with sorbitol and Percoll at haematocrit 1 and Pā€‰=ā€‰10% (blood smear left panel). iRBCs were passed though the magnetic column. Giemsa blood smear of the right panel shows the iRBCs obtained after the purification. B. Blood smears of iRBCs purified with the magnetic column after five hours of incubation. Merozoites and schizonts releasing merozoites can be observed.
