The authors developed a method to count fluorescent malaria parasite oocysts on mosquito midgut. This method should speed up the process of counting malaria parasites and limit data variation due to the observer. They present data highlighting the use of this method to increasing throughput for evaluating the transmission blocking potential of selected anti-malarial drugs.
