This parasitized blood sample was prepared, using the Plasmodium falciparum malarial antigen, and stained using the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) staining technique. The presence of malarial antibodies in this sample caused it to glow a bright green, when viewed under fluorescent light, producing a 3+ fluorescent reaction. The high degree of fluorescence, indicated that the patient’s serum, had contained antibodies that were reacting with the P. falciparum antigen preparation.
