Table 1 Parasitaemia (%) in samples from inlet, outlet 1 and outlet 2 and the enrichment for iRBCs in the ring and in later stages in three independent sorting runs, respectively

From: Label-free microfluidic enrichment of ring-stage Plasmodium falciparum-infected red blood cells using non-inertial hydrodynamic lift

Cell stage Inlet Outlet 1 Outlet 2 Enrichment (rings) Enrichment (later stages)
Ring (~8 h p.i.) 1.6 1.6 6.1 3.8 ---
Later stages --- --- --- --- ---
Ring (~10 h p.i.) 3.2 2.6 15.8 4.7 ---
Later stages 0.6 0.5 1.8 --- 3.0
Ring (~10 h p.i.) 3.4 2.1 15.7 4.5 ---
Later Stages 0.6 0.5 2.0 --- 3.3
