Holotrich Protozoa (from Rumen Fluid)

DBT Foldscope Scheme – “Foldscopes for diagnosis of rumen acidosis and parasitic infections in  cattle”. Rumen fluid from an healthy cow was taken, and stained with MFS stain  ( Methyl green Formaline Saline). This stain is mainly used to visualize the nucleus apparatus of the protozoa.
