DBT Foldscope scheme – “Foldscope for diagnosis of Rumen acidosis and Parasitic infection in cattle”.
This post is in response to Manu Prakash’s comment on our previous post (Holotrich protozoa – from Rumen fluid). Rumen fluid was collected from an healthy cow (Figure 1) in a sterile container (figure 2). A drop of rumen fluid was taken and 5 to 10 times the volume of MFS (methyl green Formalin Saline) stain was added ( figure 3). After an incubation time of about 30 mins, the mixture was taken and viewed under Foldscope (Figure 4).
