The FLOTAC group includes highly precise devices (FLOTAC, Mini-FLOTAC and Fill-FLOTAC) for a precise and sensitive parasitological diagnosis in animals and humans.
They are made with high quality materials and allow to perform new multivalent, highly sensitive and precise quantitative copromicroscopic techniques, namely the FLOTAC and the Mini-FLOTAC techniques.
These techniques permit the simultaneous detection of eggs, larvae, oocysts and cysts of helminths and protozoa in animal and human faeces. They can be performed on fresh or preserved (i.e. stored in a fixative) faecal samples.
These techniques also ensure safety of technicians as well as environmental protection. The FLOTAC devices are “closed” thus avoiding the contact of faecal samples with lab operators and they do not use reagents that are harmful for human or toxic and dangerous for the environment.
It is our hope that the use of the FLOTAC devices will help the standardization of Faecal Egg Count Techniques and will help the advancement of human and veterinary parasitology.
