English term or phrase: fecal float
Provtagning av hund och katt (tarmparasiter).
I texten förekommer "fecal smear" och "fecal float". Jag måste skilja på begreppen - det är inte tillåtet att gena.
Kontext:
"the ease of faecal floats/smears with the accuracy of a reference laboratory."
"In-House Microscopy (Faecal Float)"
"As an adjunct to faecal float parasitic diagnosis —
if you’re looking for intestinal parasites, don’t miss
a Giardia infection."

Ytterligare info från kunden:
"Both techniques are qualitative fecal examinations (not quantitative). The faecal smear consists in "obtaining a direct smear made by breaking up a very small particle of feces in a drop of saline". Once you smear the fecal
sample on a slide you can then observe it at the microscope. Is a very simple technique but its efficiency is limited because only a small particle of feces can be examined, and if a small amount of parasites is present on the sample then maybe you could obtain a false negative. To avoid this, some
concentration techniques appeared ie: faecal flotation
(http://w3.whosea.org/microbio/ch20.htm:
"If the number of parasites in the stool specimens is low,examination of a direct wet mount may not detect them, hence the stool should be concentrated. This makes direct wet mount examination obligatory as the initial phase of microscopic examination [...]. Flotation procedures: In
which the eggs and cysts float at the surface due to specific gravity gradient.
Faecal float is a more sensitive technique, as it is to concentrate the fecal sample taking advantage of a difference in the buyancy of parasites relative to food residus. After concentration (using ie: a concentrated
sucrose solution) you scan an slide of the concentrated sample on the microscope."

Det framgår alltså tydligt vad det handlar om, men jag är tacksam för hjälp med terminologin!

Teoretiskt borde väl även fekalflotation gå bra (används på tyska; och "fecal flotation" är en synonym på engelska, men jag har inte kunnat belägga det på svenska).
