The innovative FECPAKG2 diagnostic platform makes on the farm (DIY) faecal egg count testing (also known as FEC or worm egg count testing) easier and faster to do virtually anywhere, by anyone. Frequent, accurate worm egg count testing enables farmers and equine managers to treat the right animals at the right time with the right treatment, and is an important decision-making tool for vets.
Internal parasite infestation is one of the single best indicators of animal health, productivity and performance. Parasites can have an extensive negative impact on farm productivity and animal health and performance.
FECPAKG2 modernises the traditional microscope-based parasite testing method by replacing it with an internet connected, image-based kit. By doing so FECPAKG2 makes an invisible problem visible and more intuitive to manage.
Frequent FEC testing with FECPAKG2 can result in better outcomes for farmers and equine managers. This was clearly demonstrated in the recent large-scale Sainsbury’s Project. For instance, most case study farmers in the Sainsbury’s Project reduced drench use by using FECPAKG2 to shift from scheduled drenching to drenching when animals needed it, saving time and money and lessening the risk of drench resistance.
Taking a FEC sample is quick and easy – whether you’re taking an individual or a mob (pooled) sample for sheep (goats, alpaca and llamas), cattle or equine – check our short videos which demonstrate the process.
Simple to use from virtually anywhere, FECPAKG2 enables you to treat the right animals at the right time with the right treatment.
Regular faecal egg count (FEC) testing with FECPAKG2 enables you and your vet to improve the health and performance of your horses.
