Abstract

Depending on the aim and the purpose of the study, qualitative and quantitative parasitology uses a broad range of techniques and methods that are usually feasible in any regular laboratory. With the exception of the UV-press method after Karl and Leinemann (see below), no special tools are necessary. The described techniques and methods presented in this chapter have been proven practical and effective for routine use in a variety of laboratory settings and partially also in the field. They can be easily acquired and require only a minimum of apparatus/equipment.
