Absorbance levels of formazan product for different parasites concentration over time. Mechanically transformed schistosomula were distributed in 96-well plates at the concentrations of 100, 200, 300 and 400 parasites per well. Schistosomula were cultured for 48 h before addition of XTT labeling mixture. Parasites were incubated with XTT labelling mixture for 4, 6 and 24 h before absorbance measurements. Linear regression r 2 values are indicated on the graph
