Chemical disinfection is common practice and inevitable to achieve sufficient control over parasites particularly in intensive animal housing systems. To identify suitable chemicals, reliable data on antiparasitic efficacy of disinfectants are required. This review summarizes recently published experience with procedures applied to evaluate the viability of a variety of endoparasites following physical or chemical stress. It is concluded that laboratory models used to assess antiparasitic efficacy of e.g. commercial disinfectants should consider the most resistant stages of both helminths and protozoa, i.e. ascarid eggs and coccidia oocysts. To ensure reproducibility and transparency, standardized protocols are pivotal. Such protocols are established on a national level (e.g. DVG guidelines in Germany); however, internationally accepted certification procedures are currently lacking.
