The “Rapid Fluorescent Malaria Test – UV” (RFMT) based on the staining of the macromolecule DNA and could be performed with capillary and EDTA blood. The fluorescent dye DAPI, precoated on the microscopic slide, is intercalating into the DNA and could be detected by excitation with ultraviolet light. No difficult quality management is necessary, because of the parallel staining of the nuclei of the leucocytes, which shows that the test is working as expected. Positive stained malaria parasites could be also detected in adult erythrocytes, because of their loss of the nucleus.
