WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION INTESTINAL PARASITE GUIDELINES

The World Health Organisation approved parasite guidelines provides detailed informaiton and confirms how to detect intestinal parasites. The highlighted guidelines clearly state that ‘whilst direct smears will often detects helminth eggs, it is usually more efficient to do a simple concentration procedure to avoid overlooking parasites that may be present in very small numbers.’  

WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION MINI PARASEP PUBLICATION

This study evaluates the diagnostic performance of Mini-Parasep and others in detection of Schistosoma mansoni and soil-transmitted helminths ova. Findings: ‘The high sensitivity of Mini-Parasep suggests its promise as an alternative diagnostic tool in enhancing diagnosis, in monitoring schistosomiasis transmission, and determining endpoint of intervention programs.'

JOURNAL OF CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY: PARASEP & ALCORFIX

Microscropic examination of feces is a standard laboratory method for diagnosing gastrointestinal parasite infections. In North America, the ova and parasite (O&P) examination is typically performed using stool that is chemically fixed in polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and formalin, after which the stool is concentrated by filtration to enhance sensitivity.

NEQAS FAECAL CONCENTRATION PUBLICATION

The aim of this study was to determine whether variation in the preservative, pore size of the sieve, solvent, centrifugal force, and centrifugation time used in the Ridley-Allen Concentration method for examining faecal specimens for parasite stages had any effect on their recovery in faecal specimens.

THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND HYGIENE: PARASEP

In this cross-sectional study by the RSTMH, the researchers compared the performance of Mini Parasep® solvent-free (SF) faecal parasite concentrator, Kato-Katz thick smear and McMaster techniques for the diagnosis of intestinal parasitic infections among children in Wosha Soyama Primary School, Ethiopia.

HOSPITAL FOR TROPICAL DISEASES: PARASEP VS. RIDLEY-ALLEN

The Ridley-Allen modified formol ether sedimentation technique is the method of choice for routine use by most clinical laboratories. This procedure utilises filtration of a faecal suspension followed by solvent extraction and centrifugation. It requires several pieces of apparatus and can present potential COSHH problems.

UNIVERSITY OF JOS: MINI PARASEP SF VS. RITCHIE

This study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of the Mini Parasep® SF commercial faecal parasite concentrator for the laboratory diagnosis of intestinal parasitism. This was compared with the modified Ridley-Allen sedimentation technique.

HOSPITAL FOR TROPICAL DISEASE: RIDLEY-ALLEN VS. RITCHIE

The simplified version of Ritchie’s formol-ether technique for the concentration of faecal cysts, ova, and larvae (Ridley and Hawgood, 1956), which is no less effective than the original, has been quite widely adopted as a useful routine diagnostic procedure.

COMPARISON OF TWO PARASITE CONCENTRATION TECHNIQUES

The Mini Parasep® Solvent Free patient collection procedure is a simple, closed plastic system containing a liquid preservative and an adapted filter. Using the built-in dispenser, the patient can insert the required amount of feces directly into the device. The sample is then placed directly in the laboratory centrifuge without the need for additional reagents, eliminating the classical fat separation phase, (the traditional Ritchie modified method).

COMPARISON OF ZINC SULPHATE/FORMALIN ETHER

A number of techniques have been devised to detect helminth ova and/or protozoan cysts. These may be classified ac­cording to features of manipulation and physical attributes in the follwong manner: direct smear (wet saline mounts, with or without stains, and permanently stained mounts); sedimentation, fol­lowed by direct smear; flotation procedures, with or without centri­fugation; and ether sedimentation with centrifugation.
