Hookworm Culture Service

Hookworms are the collective name for nematodes of the family Hookwormidae, whose morphology is characterized by well-developed mouth pouch. Among the nematodes that inhabit the human gastrointestinal tract, hookworms are the most dangerous, causing chronic and long-term blood loss, which can lead to anemia and anemia-related symptoms. Hookworm has a worldwide distribution, especially in tropical and subtropical regions, where infection is more common in the population. The larvae of hookworm are commonly called hookworms and are divided into two stages: bacillary larvae and filarial larvae. The filarial larvae have the ability to infect. When the filarial larvae invade human skin, they can cause hookworm dermatitis and respiratory discomfort.

Ace Therapeutics specializes in parasitology and has established a parasite culture technology platform that provides culture services for a wide range of parasites. We provide in vitro culture services for hookworm, aiming to facilitate its species identification, morphological studies, life history (ecology), pathogenesis, epidemiological patterns, immunogenetic characteristics, and preservation of the species.

Service Options for Hookworm Culture

We provide hookworm culture service for the auxiliary examination of hookworm, the main culture method is test tube - filter paper culture method.

  • Test tube - filter paper culture method

Under suitable conditions of temperature and humidity, hookworm eggs develop and hatch larvae within a few days, usually after 3-5 days, and can be observed with the naked eye or magnification. The detection rate is 7 times that of the direct smear method and is also superior to the saturated saline floating aggregation method, and the hatched filarial larvae can be used for worm species identification. This test can be used to determine the corresponding disease signs.
