Imaging Trypanosoma cruzi within tissues from chagasic patients using confocal microscopy with monoclonal antibodies


Confocal fluorescence microscopy combined with differential interference contrast imaging of tissues from chagasic patients enabled the unequivocal identification of the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. Using different monoclonal antibodies that indicate the parasite form and replication stage in conjunction with DNA labelling, specimens derived from distinct… (More)
