Thick and Thin Smear Preparation for Malarial Parasites
I. Questions:
1. Why is the asexual stage of malarial parasite and gametocyte forms counted
separately?
- Because it is important when monitoring the response to schizontocidal drugs, which
only affects the asexual stage and not with gametocytes.
2. Why is it important to fix the thin smears and not the thick smear?
- Since the thin smear is used for identification of species of parasite, fixing the thin
smear with methanol is important in order to preserve the morphology of the red
blood cells.
3. Blood parasites are normally reported by its mere presence. On the other hand, it is a
must to count malarial parasites. Why?
- Quantifications of parasites is important for estimating the severity of the disease.
4. Is the time of collection important for detection of blood parasites? Why?
- Yes, because blood smear should be obtained as soon as malaria is suspected.
