In many assays using high density plates, such as some cell-based assays, volume inaccuracies of less than one microlitre can significantly alter results," said Kiara Williams, Product Manager, Automation Liquid Handling, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
One microlitre (1[micro]l) of the mixed hexane extract was injected splitless (the split opening after 4 ml) in Elmer 8500 gas chromatograph equipped with a flame--ionization detector (FID) on a 25 m x 0.
The count was then converted to parasite per microlitre of blood using baseline white cell count (WCC) of each patient.
