LED fluorescence microscopy offers potential benefits to the diagnosis of human African trypanosomiasis, as well as to other aspects of diseases management, such as detection of drug resistant strains. To advance such approaches reliable and specific fluorescent markers to stain parasites in human fluids are needed. Here we report a series of novel green fluorescent diamidines and their suitability as probes to stain trypanosomes.
