A modified technique for detecting helminths ova in animal faeces



A modified technique for detecting helminths ova in animal faeces



Journal of the Egyptian Society of Parasitology 12(2): 427-430



Known numbers of Neoascaris vitulorum and Fasciola eggs were mixed with 2 g samples of egg-free animal faeces; the mixture was put in a special cloth sac (mesh size 400/cm2) by means of a syringe and the sac was tied and placed in a test tube. Ethyl ether, saline and sodium tungstate were added to the tube, which was stoppered and shaken for 20 min. Four 0.05 ml samples of liquid were taken from the tube and placed on a slide and examined for eggs.
