Abstract:

A continuous flow sonic system and various other methods for freeing malaria parasites from their host erythrocytes were evaluated from the standpoint of the morphological integrity of the freed parasites and the utility of the freed parasites as sources of antigen for serological tests. The antigens obtained from the parasites freed by the sonic system were evaluated by complement fixation, passive hemagglutination, and gel diffusion. Modified author abstract
