Tsetse skin infection

I am using trypanosome-transmitting tsetse flies to infect artificial skin models in the most natural way. As proof of principle, skin models were exposed to infected tsetse and metacyclic trypanosomes were observed in the skin using a combination of high speed and high resolution (stereo)-fluorescence microscopy that allows visualizing the parasites in all layers of the skin model.
