Additionally, during the exposure period chronic effects such as alterations in behavior, physiology and immune system were assessed by the total hemocyte

Incorporating a specially developed hemocyte
percolating filter, the tube can drastically reduce the time required for blood drawing and testing from 15-40 minutes to only 2 minutes.

Individual hemolymph samples were either 1) immediately fixed in formaldehyde (2% final concentration) for estimation of hemocyte
concentration, or 2) deposited in cytometry tubes to separately measure cell viability, phagocytic capacity and the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Figure 2b presents a section of a similar region of the cephalopedal mass of a one-week old infected mollusk, with disorganization of the fibrous muscular structure of the foot, reduction of the mucous secretory cells, and many granuloma-like structures composed of hemocyte
infiltration, but staining with Gomori's trichrome did revealed no collagen deposition or a small quantity of it in these structures around the larvae.
