Parasite Images from the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory

These microphotographic images of parasites were taken at the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory. The OSPHL Parasitology Department is equipped with a QImaging MicroPublisher 3.3 RTV high resolution Digital Camera mounted on a Leica DMLS microscope.

This equipment is used in conjunction with the Division of Parasitic Diseases (DPDx) at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to aid in the rapid diagnosis of unusual or difficult parasitic diseases using digital images and the Internet.
