Figure 1: Flow diagram depicting the use of Parasep® SF technique in the microbiology laboratory. (a) Unassembled Parasep® SF tube: flat-bottomed mixing chamber (1) and filter attached to the conical sedimentation with an inbuilt spoon (2); (b) the sedimentation cone scoop of fecal specimen is assembled to the mixing chamber and then vortexed with the sedimentation cone facing upward; (c) the Parasep® SF tube is then centrifuged after inverting at 400 g for 2 min; (d) sedimentation chamber after centrifugation; (e) wet mount preparation from the sediment
