PMID: 4492851

A modified filtration technique for detecting microfilariae in blood is described. One ml of blood is withdrawn from a dog by a 10 ml syringe and immediately diluted and lysed, in the syringe, with a lysing solution which contains an anticoagulant and does not destroy the microfilariae. The lysed cell solution is injected through a filter system and, after washing, the filter is transferred to a slide, stained, and examined under low-power magnification.
