productThe Para-Pak® SpinCon® is a patented one-spin system for the concentration of eggs, larvae, and protozoa from preserved fecal specimens. Specimens preserved in 10% Formalin, Sodium Acetate Formalin (SAF), and EcoFix may be used with the system.
    SpinCon involves passing a preserved stool specimen through a preliminary screen by gravity flow. The specimen is then forced by centrifugation through a series of two screens with successively smaller mesh. The series of screens trap stool yet allow even the larger parasites to pass through. The resulting pellet may be examined for the presence of parasites by standard wet mount procedures.
