27 December 2019 (Friday) - Malaria Detection


There was an interesting post on the Facebook Haematology Interest Group today. Some references were given, and then there was a rather interesting discussion about how we all test for malaria. Opinion was divided.
Some use the new technology because it is far more sensitive than the old-fashioned microscopy. Some have even abandoned microscopy altogether.
Some stick to the microscope because the new technology doesn’t actually work (!?)
