FLOTAC: an improved method for diagnosis of lungworm infections in sheep.


The FLOTAC techniques involve the spinning of faecal samples onto the surface of counting chambers to permit enumeration of parasitic elements (eggs, larvae, oocysts and cysts) to an accuracy of one parasitic element per gram of faeces.
