ID#: 21740
This parasitized blood sample was prepared, using the Plasmodium falciparum malarial antigen, and stained using the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) staining technique. The absence of malarial antibodies in this sample caused it to produce no green glow, therefore, this sample was categorized as producing a negative reaction to this serologic test. See PHIL 21737, 21738, and 21739, for examples of samples producing positive reactions. The degree of fluorescence, would indicate whether or not, the patient’s serum contained antibodies that were reacting with the P. falciparum antigen preparation.
