In order to easily assess growth and destruction of Toxoplasma gondii in vitro, this report describes two double staining assays that both visualize live and dead organisms: acridine orange--ethidium bromide (AO-EB) and bisbenzimide (Hoechst 33258)--propidium iodide (B-PI). EB and PI were chosen for dead organisms staining while AO and B stain viable organisms. Thus, both double staining assays seem more informative than Giemsa staining or indirect immunofluorescence.
