Table 1 Schematic features of Mini-FLOTAC, McMaster (grid and chamber) and Cornell-Wisconsin techniques

From: The recovery of added nematode eggs from horse and sheep faeces by three methods

FEC Techniques Amount of faeces used (grams) Dilution Ratio Reading Volume (ml) Reading Area (mm2) Analytical sensitivity (EPG)
Mini-FLOTAC 5 1:10 2.0 648 5
McMaster grid 3 1:15 0.30 200 50
McMaster chamber 3 1:15 1.0 648 15
Cornell-Wisconsin 5 1:10 10 324 1
