artifact description
For many years parasitologists have studied a group of animals called flukes. Although much is known about them now, difficulty has been encountered in obtaining the metacercarial form for study. At present there is no universally satisfactory method available to free metacercariae from the cyst walls that enclose them. The development of such a method would remove a stumbling block from the path of further study of the fluke life histories.
