Biochemical investigation of parasitic protozoa usually can be carried out with a minimum of modifications of standard techniques. Methods requiring only small amounts of material, such as those involving radiotracers, are often favoured. The preparation of the protozoan material in a form suitable for the application of the standard techniques, however, requires the specialist methodology which will be outlined in this chapter. The reader is urged at this point to resist the temptation to turn to chapter 4 since it is important that the problems and present limitations of the methodology for biochemical work with parasitic protozoa should be clearly understood.
