Seven new P. falciparum lines from Africa now available!
Dr. Colin Sutherland, LSHTM, UK, has deposited with the EMRR seven new culture-adapted Plasmodium falciparum lines from UK travellers. These are labelled HL1204 to HL1214 in the Plasmodium falciparum section of the reagents lists. All are polyclonal isolates of varying drug sensitivities, from five different African countries. We have expanded all of these lines. Vials of parasites can be shipped via our couriers worldwide. See van Scalkwyk et al., (2013) Malaria Journal 12:320 and the reagent infomation pages for more information on these lines.
