Abstract:The long-overdue introduction of new technology into parasite diagnostics has produced important tests that are now finding a place in clinical laboratories. It is too early to consider abandoning microscopy; the novel technology will run alongside the more traditional techniques for some years to come. Well-trained microscopists, supported by regular continuing professional development and external quality assessment schemes, are still central to the provision of a reliable diagnostic parasitology service.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
