Soil-transmitted helminths (STH) are parasitic intestinal worms that are controlled with mass drug administration in at-risk populations. The work described in this poster aims to develop a rapid, field-deployable, non-instrumented, magnetic bead-based protocol to extract STH egg DNA in stool, using Ascaris suum as model species, for use as a companion tool to recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA)-based diagnostics for STH.
