At Prime Coral Labs, Rapid Tissue Necrosis (RTN) and Slow Tissue Necrosis (STN) in corals has been linked to the presence of predatory parasitic protozoans infecting coral colonies. These protozoan parasites are only visible with the aid of a light microscopic analysis. On average, these protozoans are 1/10 of a millimeter (0.1 mm). For the first time ever, reef keepers now have the access to get a diagnosis for the health of their coral showing signs of infection along with treatment recommendation.
Coral Tissue Necrosis Microscopic Diagnosis by Prime Coral Labs provides a detailed examination of the RTN and/or STN parasites infesting your coral sample. The examination of your coral sample is done under a 40x and 100x light microscope. A report will be provided with the types of parasites infecting the sample, an estimated number of parasites and recommended treatment.
The kit consists of a water tight vial with ethyl alcohol and a prepaid return envelope.
Caution: Handle kit contents with care. Use gloves, skin. and eye protection.
