Welcome to the future of parasitology
OvaCyte Faecal Analyser – a faster, smarter way to identify and count intestinal parasites and trematodes
OvaCyteTM is a novel point-of-care automated system that uses digital analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to count and identify eggs of intestinal parasites and trematodes in a wide range of host species.
As a result of the prevalence of parasitic infection, faecal egg testing is one of the most frequently performed laboratory tests in veterinary medicine. Until recently, laboratory or in-practice testing using an experienced technician and a microscope was the only way to determine the type and number of parasites in the animal host. OvaCyte is a patent-protected, parasite egg recovery platform technology that takes the diagnostic process into the future.
Easy, smart and reliable
Just <3 minutes hands-on time is needed for an easy sample prep, before a fully automated process delivers rapid, reliable results, with no technical training required
Results in minutes
Results are available in real time during the scan on the analyser screen and immediately after the scan is completed on the web app, including all scan images.
AI powered software
Artificial intelligence removes the need for manual microscopy leveraging a library of over 1million images and 150,000 tagged parasites.
How it works
See OvaCyte in action
OvaCyteTM is as easy as A, B, C.
Sample preparation takes <3 minutes before being injected into the proprietary cassette.
Once on the analyser, the cassette’s surface is scanned using a high-powered microscope lens and camera. Data analysis is powered by artificial intelligence and results are reported within minutes on the analyser, your laptop, or your phone.

Testing time reduced from days to minutes
It is convenient, accurate, reproducible and cost-effective.
Manual testing can be costly and time consuming, taking up to days to get results. OvaCyte takes the stress out of waiting for results, enabling you to take on-the-spot treatment decisions and better serve your customers.
Proven Accuracy And Reliability
The image recognition software identifies each specific parasite species and the number of parasitic eggs or oocysts present.

- Additional validation information is available on request, just ask.
AI - Pushing boundaries
AI algorithms utilize the proprietary OvaCyte parasite library and use a complex methodology to identify the eggs and oocysts with a high degree of accuracy.
- Images captured by the analyser are sent to the cloud.
- AI cross-references every object in the image to the library.
- Eggs and oocysts are labeled, counted and reported.
Analysis and reporting take between 5 minutes (standard scan, diagnostic sensitivity equivalent to McMaster) and 15 minutes (extended scan, five times higher diagnostic sensitivity than McMaster).
