These flow rates were selected because 15 mL [min.sup.-1] was the slowest repeatable flow rate that the pump could output, and 62 mL [min.sup.-1] was the fastest flow rate that the reaction cell could handle with the immersion lens. The same area of the sample was examined as the flow rate was changed.
The LD bodies in a smear were seen under X100 or oil immersion lens. At this magnification they were seen as an oval body with clear nucleus and sometimes a small kinetoplast.
