Abstract

Traditional methods for the diagnosis of parasitic helminth infections of livestock have a number of limitations, such as the inability to distinguish mixed-species infections, a heavy reliance on technical experience and also sub-sampling errors. Some of these limitations may be overcome through...

Abstract

A multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) procedure to amplify 18S ribosomal RNA gene fragments of Cryptosporidium. spp. was developed. Amplified DNA fragments of the expected size were obtained which were specific for C. parvum/C. wrairi (422 bp), C. baileyi (1106 bp) and C. muris (1346 bp). C....

Abstract

Blagg's method, Willis' salt flotation, McMaster's and direct examination using Lugol solution were compared for their efficiency in detecting Giardia in faeces. Blagg's method performed best, identifying Giardia in 50% of 200 goats, 20% of 47 sheep and 5% of 40 calves tested. Lugol solution tested ...

Abstract

Storage of cattle faeces at room temperature resulted in a rapid decline in the numbers of Dictyocaulus viviparus larvae recoverable by the Baermann technique. Storage at 8 deg C, however, improved the recovery rate over the first 6 to 15 days and substantial recoveries were achieved after 35 to 55 ...

Abstract

After a day's storage of cattle faeces at 20-23 deg C the number of Dictyocaulus viviparus larvae recoverable by the Baermann technique quickly declined. In one of 2 experiments many of the larvae were recovered after the first day from the water condensed inside the plastic bag in which the faeces ...

Abstract

Post-mortem worm counts, plasma pepsinogen analyses and faecal egg counts as aids to the diagnosis of gastro-intestinal helminthiasis in sheep and cattle are briefly reviewed. Experiments showed a good correlation between individual egg and worm counts in young sheep (up to 12 months old) but not...

Abstract

A 4g sample of bovine faeces is mixed thoroughly with 56 ml of flotation solution in a disposable polystyrene cup. A piece of gauze is placed over the cup and is pressed down by a 2nd cup from which the bottom has been removed. A sample of filtrate is then transferred to a McMaster slide. The...

Abstract

Seven techniques were compared for their efficacy in detecting Cryptosporidium in the faeces of 115 neonate calves, 77 of which had diarrhoea. The technique proposed by Henriksen and Pohlenz (1982) showed the presence of Cryptosporidium in 5.1% of the calves; Günter's technique (1983),...
