cysts of Entamoeba histolytica


Explanation:
The cysts of Entamoeba histolytica [...] measure between 10 and 20 µm in diameter. The key identification feature is the number of nuclei; cyst will have 1 to 4 nuclei. In addition, the peripheral chromatin is generally evenly distributed. In the image on the right, two nuclei are clearly visible (iron-hematoxylin stain, 1000x).


The E. HISTOLYTICA TEST is an enzyme immunoassay for the rapid detection of the adhesin of E. histolytica in human fecal specimens. It is indicated for use with fecal specimens from patients with diarrhea or dysentery to determine the presence of E. histolytica gastrointestinal infection. The test can be used for fecal specimens submitted for routine clinical testing from adults or children. Conventional microscopy is not a prerequisite for use of the E. HISTOLYTICA TEST.
