BAERMANN FUNNEL TECHNIQUE FOR NEMATODE LARVAE PRINCIPLE The Baermann funnel technique for detection of nematode larvae relies on the. 3) ISOLATION OF NEMATODES. The nematodes were then isolated using Modified Baermann’s Funnel Technique. (Baermann, ) (Figure ). This method. The Baermann funnel technique is now well known to nematologists, but the modification here described was devised to facilitate the collection of large numbers.

Once your mount is completed, the nail polish supports will prevent your nematodes from getting crushed.

Attach hose to funnel and place funnel with hose into ring of ring stand. Carefully add gaermann water to the funnel until the water surface is almost above the top of the tissue. Set up ring stand.


Introduction to the Pathogen Groups. Do not use facial tissue that has moisturizing lotion incorporated into the tissue.

Place circular piece of wire screen inside of funnel. Plant Disease Mngmt Simulations. You want to warm it just enough so that the nematodes stop moving, but not too much or the nematodes will burst; you can check the progress by looking at this slide under your dissecting microscope.

When you are ready to observe nematodes, carefully release the clamp on the hose attached to the funnel, and collect bzermann to 10 ml of solution in a Petri plate or watch glass. Place three or four drops of clear nail polish on a clean microscope slide so as to form the corners of a triangle or rectangle of a size that will support a cover slip FIGURE Plant-parasitic nematodes recovered from soil will be sluggish and slow moving whereas most free-living nematodes will be very active swimmers NOTE: Observe solution with a dissecting microscope for the presence of plant-parasitic and free-living nematodes.

Baermann funnel A device used to extract nematodes Nematoda from a soil sample or plant material. At this time, make sure that water is not leaking from the tube. Then, copy and paste the text into your funnsl or works cited list.

You should be able to differentiate between stylet-bearing most likely plant-parasitic and non-stylet-bearing free-living nematodes at the highest magnification of the dissecting fknnel.

Warm this drop of water by passing the slide six to eight times over the flame of an alcohol lamp to relax the nematodes.

If tube is leaking, re-adjust hose clamp until leaking stops. After about 12 hours they can be collected by drawing off the bottom centimetre baermanh water. Topics in Plant Pathology.
