Description:Magnified 400X, this photomicrograph revealed the presence of an artifactual finding, which resembles a trematode egg of the Chinese, or oriental liver fluke, Clonorchis sinensis.
Organic debris including pollen granules, and aberrations that arise during specimen processing, can lead to confusion, and false-positive test results. Therefore, a trained laboratory practitioner needs to use a trained eye when observing these slides, and tape into his/her experiential knowledge base when making a definitive diagnosis, as to the absence, or presence of possible pathogens.
