Slide of human blood seen at  1000x magnification.  Red circles are red blood cells.  Two trypanosome parasites (Trypanosoma cruzi) are visible in the top half of the image (purple-stained organisms that look like small worms).  The distinct purple dot is most likley the kinetoplast.  These parasites cause Chagas disease, trypanosomiasis.
