Stage Mean size (nm) (range) in:
  Dense granules Amylopectin Lipid
Sporozoite 208 (175-250) 356 (200-460) 388 (200-550)
Tachyzoite 244 (133-334) 201 (103-333) 224 (150-400)
Bradyzoite 181 (167-201) 358 (192-603) 0
For the source of these infectious stages, (Table 23). It must be noted that tachyzoites and bradyzoites could both be present in the same parasitophorus vacuole indicating that stage conversion from tachyzoite to bradyzoite is asynchronous
