Table 2 HGMS-depletion experiments

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

  Initial culture:   HGMS depleted fraction:  
Experiment No. Rings+early trophozoites [%] Late trophozoites + schizonts [%] Rings+early trophozoites [%] Late trophozoites + schizonts
1 5.32 0.38 5.19 none
2 3.54 0.77 3.21 none
3 11.57 1.18 11.86 none

5 4.67 4.48 4.69 none
  1. For each experiment, 50 μl of packed cells from Plasmodium culture were applied to the depletion column as described in material and methods. The flow-through was collected and analyzed microscopically (1000 rbc counted). Experiments were performed on different days from different cultures.
