PrioCHECK Trichinella AAD is a reliable alternative to the currently used pepsin-based artificial digestion
method, because the test uses a recombinantly produced enzyme from a standardized and secured production facility, ensuring good availability of the enzyme and consistent quality.
released parasites (6 larvae/5 gm tissue) with typical larval trematode structures (Figure, panel B).
More hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) were mobilized from soil when more bile or protein was added during the artificial digestion
The current method of routinely performing post-slaughter testing of each carcass at the slaughterhouse by artificial digestion
is costly and relatively insensitive.
Crocodile-breeding farms should adopt the artificial digestion
method used in many countries to screen pigs for Trichinella infection (7).
