A simple and selective method for visualizing the kinetoplast of trypanosomes by means of phosphomolybdic acid and a photographic developer

Abstract

Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes treated with phosphomolybdic acid and the photographic developer Rodinal display bright kinetoplasts when unmounted smears are observed using low-magnification phase-contrast objectives. This simple method enables the rapid and accurate identification of kinetoplasts in trypanosomes.
