This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.

If malarial parasite is present, it suggests malaria infection. Further investigations and treatment will be required. If the malaria parasite examination test is negative, it does not completely rule out malarial infection.
