Intra- and extracellular Plasmodium parasites in fixed blood smears are easily identifiable by fluorescence microscopy after brief mordanting with aluminum ammonium sulfate and staining with morin (3,5,7,1',4'-pentahydroxyflavanol). The intensely fluorescent preparations of stained parasites are strongly resistant to photodegradation and remained essentially unimpaireed for two years.
