Virtual Laboratory

The Virtual Laboratory module includes videos that demonstrate a number of basic techniques used in the laboratory diagnosis of faecal and blood parasites. It is designed to provide vital knowledge on the diagnostic principles, step-wise protocols, advantages and limitations of various parasitological techniques, which will help learners to independently perform parasitological examinations in the laboratory for the microscopic detection and identification of parasite stages and species.
