The innovative FECPAKG2 diagnostic platform makes faecal egg count (FEC) testing easier and faster to do virtually anywhere, by anyone. Frequent, accurate FEC testing enables equine managers to treat the right animals at the right time with the right treatment and ensure the treatment has worked.
By improving parasite management with FECPAK G2 you can improve animal health and performance, save time and money, and take a more sustainable approach to drench use.
Validation of FECPAKG2 in horses has been undertaken by Aberystwyth University (UK) who stated in their report:
UK research undertaken by Fiona Tyson has concluded FECPAKG2 is effective for performing faecal egg counts in horses and it could even help slow the development of parasite resistance in the equine industry.
The peer reviewed study called Novel Equine Faecal Egg Diagnostics: Validation of the FECPAKG2 was published in July 2020. And concluded;
It is anticipated that the user-friendliness of the method will increase the uptake of FECs amongst horse owners by the direct use of the technology or through their veterinary practice, likely slowing the development of anthelmintic resistance.

Making FEC testing easy to do on-site helps equine managers develop the right treatment programme for valuable individual animals.
FECPAKG2 make an invisible problem visible and more intuitive to manage by modernising the traditional microscope-based parasite testing method. The FECPAKG2 equine faecal egg count system is simple to use with quick results and your data is securely stored and accessible/shared via your online portal.
FECPAKG2 enables you to take control of your own FEC testing. Alternatively, it provides vet clinics and retailers a fully-auditable, image based system to conduct FEC testing on your equine faecal samples.
The ease of use of FECPAKG2 means that an equine manager does not need to also be a lab technician. With a little practice, anyone can prepare and submit a FEC test with FECPAKG2, and do so from anywhere.
Sending information by internet frees you from transporting faecal samples to town, an especially useful thing for those in more remote locations. It also provides you with faster results. Within an hour of submission, your results will be ready so that you can quickly target that day’s treatment to the animals that need it.
Accessed via our user portal, all egg count test results are stored online and are easy to view, analyse or share with key personnel.
FECPAKG2 revolutionises parasite management. It is an internet connected, image based diagnostic platform scientifically validated to conduct faecal egg count (FEC) tests on animals. With FECPAKG2 you can save time and money, improve animal health and performance, and use worming treatments more sustainably.
Drench resistance is a massive and growing problem. Using ineffective drenches can significantly reduce lamb weight gain, farm income and lower the value of your property. A DrenchSmart faecal egg count reduction test shows you which drench actives are most effective at killing parasites in animals on your property.
The future of parasite control needs to include non-chemical methods such as breeding to ensure all treatments remain effective. PhenR provides farmers with data that allow them to rank, select and breed animals that are naturally resistant to parasites, and lessen their reliance on worming treatments.
