Do you have several horses? Additional slides and vials will enable several tests to be prepared at one time so you can have more time with your horse.
Chalex Precision Chambered Counting Slides
These slides are manufactured in the USA by the Chalex Corporation.
At Evidence Based Worming’s own laboratory, we prefer to use Chalex’s Green Grid acrylic slides because they are robust for frequent handling and their grid is generally easier to see when undertaking Faecal Egg Counts (FECs).
This is a standard McMaster type slide and is used for faecal Egg Per Gram (EPG) flotation in horses, sheep, cattle, goats, alpacas and other ruminants. The green grid is on the underside of the cover and is easy to see, especially for pigmented faeces such as goats and sheep.
In addition to using the slides for faecal egg counts, these green-grid slides may be used for quantitative checks of anthelmintic efficacy (FEC Reduction Testing – FECRT) and to provide an indication of pasture contamination. These slides are the key component of the Paracount-EPGTM Faecal Analysis Kit and they are re-usable.
