The FECPAKG2 System

 

What is the FECPAKG2 System?

FECPAKG2 is a complete remote-location parasite assessment tool for sheep and goats. It provides information about worm burden quickly for the farmer, manager, vet or adviser so they can make more informed management decisions. The FECPAKG2 unit contains a device, called the MICRO-I, which captures a microscopic image of a pre prepared faecal sample.   The image is uploaded onto a specialised system via the internet.  An egg count is then performed and the results are returned to the farmer by email and also stored online for future reference and reporting.
