The E line of NF54 stock parasites was amplified in a volunteer patient "E", who participated in a clinical trial in February 1995 at WRAIR. The parent NF54 strain of Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) was isolated from a patient living near an airport in the Netherlands, who had never left the country.

Strain NF54 "E" line has been minimally passaged in vitro and produces competent gametocytes for mosquito (Anopheles stephensi) infection up to passage 40. The whole genome shotgun sequence of P. falciparum, strain NF54 is available (GenBank: AMYQ00000000).

Each vial of MRA-1000 contains approximately 0.5 mL of P. falciparum infected human blood in Glycerolyte 57 solution (1:5).
