Abstract Confocal scanning fluorescence microscopy has become widely used in cell biology and pathology. In conjunction with monoclonal antibodies it may turn out to be a powerful diagnostic tool that also enables detailed studies of tissue forms of Trypanosoma cruzi.

A microscopia confocal por varredura a laser vem se tornando extremamente útil na biologia celular e patologia. Com o uso de anticorpos monoclonais, pode ser uma poderosa ferramenta de diagnóstico assim como para estudos detalhados das diferentes formas do Trypanosoma cruzi em vários tecidos infectados.
