Abstract

An apparatus for rapid screening of large numbers of snails for cercariae of digenetic trematodes is described. Snails are placed in special plastic vials suspended in Lexan inserts, exposed to fluorescent light in a wooden cabinet, and then examined in a special aluminum tray designed for use with a dissecting microscope.
