Plasmodium Culture Service

Plasmodium Culture Service

Plasmodium Culture Service

Plasmodium is a sporozoite transmitted by Anopheles mosquitoes and is the causative agent of malaria. There are many species of Plasmodium, but there are four main species of plasmodium parasitizing humans, namely Plasmodium vivax Grassi & Feletti, Plasmodium malariae Laveran, Plasmodium falciparum Welch and Plasmodium ovale Stephens. The life histories of the four species of plasmodium parasitizing humans are basically the same, requiring two hosts, human and Anopheles. In humans, they are parasitized in liver cells and erythrocytes and undergo schizogony (proliferation). Development in the human body is divided into extra-erythrocytic stage (intrahepatocyte development) and intra-erythrocytic stage (intra-erythrocytic development and proliferation and male and female gametophyte formation).

Ace Therapeutics specializes in parasitology and has established a parasite culture technology platform that provides culture services for a wide range of parasites. We provide in vitro culture services for plasmodium, aiming to facilitate its experimental diagnosis, parasite morphology, life history (ecology), pathogenesis, epidemiological patterns, immunogenetic characteristics, preservation of insect species, and development of vaccines.

Service Options for Plasmodium Culture

Plasmodium culture can be divided into intra-erythrocytic and extra-erythrocytic stages. Of the four human Plasmodium species in the intra-erythrocytic phase culture only Plasmodium falciparum can be successfully cultured in vitro for long periods of time. We offer both intra-erythrocytic and extra-erythrocytic plasmodium cultures, so you have the flexibility to choose according to your needs.

  • Intra-erythrocytic plasmodium culture
  • Extra-erythrocytic plasmodium culture
