a Overall rates of mature gametocytaemia of Plasmodium falciparum NF54 cultured in vitro in refrigerated (closed circles) or cryo-preserved (closed triangles) RBCs and b rates of gametocytaemia in RBCs cryo-preserved within 3–4 days of collection from each donor and thawed after 1 (closed squares), 4 (closed circles), 8 (closed triangles) and 12 weeks (closed diamonds) of storage. Data represents mean ± standard errors (se). See Additional file 3a for detailed trends separated by flask, RBC donor as well as experimental block
