Automated counting of parasites. a Representative bright field image of RBCs on hydrophilic-treated plates (left panels). Fluorescence images of the same field (right panels). Images of Plasmodium-infected or uninfected RBCs stained with SYTO21 are shown in the upper and lower panels, respectively. Fluorescence signals from the parasite nuclei were detected (arrows on upper left panel). b The infection rate of parasite-infected cells with various cell infection frequencies was analysed by Giemsa microscopy or by the automated counting method to determine the correlation between the two methods
