Table 1 Yield and purity of isolates in six independent experiments

From: Optimized high gradient magnetic separation for isolation of Plasmodium-infected red blood cells

Experiment no. Yield [total no. of irbc purified] Purity irbc/total cells [%]
1 12,787,500 98.46
2 16,937,500 94.23
3 11,287,500 95.42
4 9,962,500 94.87
5 11,462,500 96.43
6 10,325,000 95.05
Mean 12,127,083 95.74
S.D. 2,600,000 1.38
  1. 5 × 108 of rbc from cultures with 5-10% parasitemia were applied to the HGMS column. Experiments were performed from different cultures on different days. Purity was determined by flow cytometry, as described in material and methods.
