Abstract

Diagnosis of Trichomonas gallinae infection can reliably be made by the demonstration of organisms in material taken from a bird's mouth and crop. This can be examined directly or incubated in a growth medium until organisms are numerous enough to be easily found in aliquots examined with the microscope. We compared two methods of culture diagnosis of Trichomonas gallinae infection in pigeons. A commercially available kit, In-Pouch™TF, proved as sensitive for this purpose as in vitro Diamond's medium, but had practical advantages over the usual in vitro system.
