Talks on his involvment in the ScientifEQ laboratory
Many of our current veterinary practises outsource their faecal egg counting to our laboratory which leaves their staff free to concentrate on their clients requirements. Some practises send us all their samples whilst other practises use us as an over flow service to cover staff holidays or at peak times of the year. All of our veterinarian clients have the peace of mind that the consistant high quality service originated through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the School of Veterinary Science at Liverpool Univeristy, led by Professor Chris Proudman, and is still run to the same quality levels and offers a 48 hour sample turnaround time.
Faecal Egg Counts
The laboratory uses the Modified McMaster technique and tests each sample twice.
If there is a varience of concern between the two results, then the remaining dung is tested two further times. This ensures the accuracy of the results.
The results are reported as an average eggs per gram result.
Lungworm assays can be carried out on a variety of farm animals.
The results are reported as positive or negative.
Liver Fluke Test
Our services provide you a positive or negative result which will support your diagnostic process.
We can also offer a tapeworm flotation test.
The results are reported as postive or negative.
