Description

McMaster Precision Chambered Counting Slides

This is a standard McMaster type slide and is used for establishing the number of faecal eggs per gram (EPG) in both horse and ruminant faeces to an accuracy of 25 EPG. The coloured 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, they can also be used for quantitative checks of anthelmintic efficacy using the FEC Reduction Test, or FECRT.  This test can establish whether resistant strongyle worm populations are within the animal’s gastrointestinal tract.
