Abstract:This is the first report of a blue autofluorescence as a useful characteristic in the microscopic identification of Toxoplasma gondii oocysts. This autofluorescence appears to be of high intensity. Similar to the autofluorescence of related coccidia, the oocysts glow pale blue when illuminated with an ultraviolet light source and viewed with the correct (UV) excitation and emission filter set.
