Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An interlaboratory study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the Nacconol ether centrifugation method for recovering parasitic nematode eggs from 3 contaminated products: a crop (cabbage), a sludge fertilizer (Milorganite), and a sewage effluent (Minneapolis). Six replicate samples for each of the 3 products were seeded with eggs at 3 different levels: 200 Ascaris suis and 8 Trichuris muris; 15 A.suis and 15 T.muris; 8 A.suis and 180 T.muris. Recovery was low for all samples except sewage effluent, in which recoveries greater than 100% in 2 samples resulted from the misidentification of arthropod eggs as Ascaris sp. The average mean percent recovery for the other samples was 22.53. Repeatability for replicate samples and reproducibility of results by individual laboratories were poor, and the method is not recommended for quantitative estimates of nematode egg contamination of foods and food-contact materials. However, the Nacconol ether centrifugation method can be used as an all-or-none test. (Only 13% of 1146 counts were falsely negative.) Of 69 samples, only 4 were falsely negative for A.suis eggs and only 1 was falsely negative for T.muris eggs in counts of 6 replicates.
