McMaster Counting Slides

McMaster Counting Slides

McMaster Worm Egg Counting Slides

Faecal Worm Egg Counts – Large Animals

McMaster counting slides are widely used for performing faecal worm egg counts (F.E.C’s). Faecal worm egg counts are performed on faeces samples mainly from large animals such as horses, sheep and cattle which normally harbour low levels of worms in their guts.

We Supply Three Types Of McMaster Counting Chambers

  • All Glass McMaster Chamber
  • Glass/Hybrid McMaster Chamber
  • Acrylic McMaster Chamber

Vetlab McMaster Counting Chambers (2-Cell Acrylic)

Vetlab McMaster counting chambers are made entirely of tough acrylic. The counting slide consists of a base slide upon which a smaller slide is fixed on top of three supports thereby forming two chambers.

On the underneath of the top slide over each chamber, a grid is printed in blue ink measuring exactly 10mm x 10mm divided by 5 vertical lines (forming 6 columns). The top slide is positioned exactly 1.5mm above the base slide so the counting area of each chamber holds 0.15 ml in volume.

Fridge Freezer Thermometer

Fridge Freezer Thermometer

Brannan Thermometer

All veterinary products from reagents, diagnostic test kits and other refrigerated products should be kept at controlled temperatures.

This is essential to ensure that the products are kept at the manufacturer’s recommended temperature.

Fridges and Freezers should be checked daily by using a thermometer.

Digital Countdown Timer

Digital Countdown Timer

Electronic Countdown Timer-Clock

Our digital clock-timer is ideal for laboratory use. The clock also has a timer, which has a count-up and count-down function. This is ideal for timing diagnostic tests. It has a magnetic back as well as a stand and is very simple to set-up and operate.

We have included a FREE AAA battery and the simple instructions for set-up are on the back of the packaging.

Hints and Tips

To clean the timer, use a soft, dry cloth or a cloth moistened in a solution of water and mild neutral detergent. Never use a thinner, benzene, alcohol, or similar agents to clean the timer.
Because the timer has a magnet on the back, it must be kept away from other items also containing a magnetic strip such as credit cards, audio, videotape, floppy disks and other items, which could be damaged by the magnetism of the timer.

Changing The Battery

When the display becomes dim or the alarm is not clear enough, please change the battery. The clock requires AAA batteries (x 1).
