You might want to consider the vital dye hyroethidine, which is converted metabolically
by active cells to ethidium that can be detected by FL-1 and FL-2 on a FACScan.  You can
distinguish ring stages from schizont stages.  Use log in both FSC and SSC.  The former
on a FACScan set at E-1 Voltage and Gain set at 1.00.  See Ya Ping Shi et al.  1999.

could somebody send me a protocol for staining erythrocytes infected with 
malarial parasites... have not been able to find one. The users want to 
stain with Thiazole Orange and Hoechst. I assume it is all measured on 
linear but need to know how much UV power as well.

thanks in advance
