Mean length (μm) of microfilariae determined after fixation with the modified Knott’s technique. Measurements were conducted for 377 dogs with confirmed filarial infections (histochemical staining and PCR in part of the cases); each indicator corresponds to a dog sample, for which 10 microfilariae were measured.
