Giardia lamblia protozoan dividing. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a single Giardia protozoan about to become two separate organisms during a late stage of cell division (binary fission). Giardia are single-celled parasites of the intestinal tract. They are most common in tropical regions and have flagella (hair-like structures), which are used for locomotion. Giardia lamblia is the causative agent of giardiasis, an intestinal disease that causes abdominal pain, diarrhoea and…
