5. Air-dry the smears. 6. Examine smears with a fluorescence microscope (FITC filters) at about ×600 magnification. Confirm spirochete morphology at ×1000. Results Borrelia spirochetes are found in thick parts of the smears. They appear bright orange against a green or black background. Note: acridine orange to detect spirochetes in peripheral blood smears is simple and more sensitive than Wright–Giemsa stain. , 1983. 3 Cerebrospinal fluid specimens for the diagnosis of bacterial meningitis Purpose Detection of bacteria in cerebrospinal fluid specimens.

Do not smoke in the laboratory. • Wash hands after doing bench work and before leaving the laboratory. • Use a ventilated safety cabinet, if available, or an enclosed ventilated safety box. e. 2). Wire loops used to make sputum smears may be reused after dipping them in 70%–95% ethanol or methanol in sand and then holding them in a flame until they glow. Dipping the wire loop in ethanol dehydrates the specimen so that it does not spatter in the flame. The sand helps remove large particles. The flame should be colourless or blue, because an orange or red flame is usually not hot enough to sterilize the loop or needle.
