More worms isolated by the latter method were viable compared to those isolated by pepsin-HCl digestion. When host carcasses infected with T. pseudospiralis were diced into pieces and incubated in HBSS, 30% more worms were recovered than from homogenized carcasses incubated in HBSS as above, and the majority of worms acquired…
