(A)TC20automated cell counter(Bio-Rad, Hercules, California, USA)was used to count rosette-rich epimastigote, according to the manufacturer’s instruction. Actual cell count was determined by using hemocytometer after breaking apart cell aggregates by pipetting and vortexing. Dottedlinerepresentsthetheoreticallineofperfectcorrelationbetweenactual cell counts and machine-estimated cell counts. (B)Fiji-ImageJ software was used to count the same sample as(A),using threshold adjustment and watershed segmentation functions.(C)Cell Profiler Worm Toolbox was used to count the same sample as(A).The same still images used in (B)were analyzed.
