Kuladeepa Ananda Vaidya, Sukesh K.

Abstract
The technical capability to perform a correct and timely diagnosis of malaria infection in an ill patient is of critical importance since symptoms of complicated malaria may suddenly develop, leading to death of the patient. Even though peripheral blood smear examination is considered as the gold standard technique, tests like Quantitative Buffy Coat (QBC) test and Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) are widely used and more sensitive in detecting malaria parasite. Here we are briefly highlighting the importance of QBC and other useful diagnostic methods for diagnosing malaria.

Key words: Quantitative Buffy Coat, Malaria, Diagnosis, Peripheral blood smear
