The development of Thelazia skrjabini Erschow, 1928, was studied in experimentally infected laboratory-reared Musca autumnalis De Geer. Thelazia skrjabini developed to the infective third stage in a minimum of 9 days in M. autumnalis maintained at 27 +/- 2 C. First-stage larvae were not observed postinoculation, but second-stage larvae were first observed 3(More)
A face fly (Musca autumnalis) population near Wetaskiwin, central Alberta, Canada, was sampled 9 times from 26 July to 29 September 1988 for the early larval stages of Thelazia spp. Of 426 female flies examined, 159 (37%) contained Thelazia spp. (almost exclusively T. skrjabini), with an average worm burden of 4.2 larvae per infected fly. Prevalence ranged(More)
Formaldehyde is a key fixation reagent. This review explores its application in combination with qualitative and quantitative mass spectrometry (MS). Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues form a large reservoir of biologically valuable samples and their investigation by MS has only recently started. Furthermore, formaldehyde can be used to(More)
