The nematodes used were Steinernema carpocapsae All (isolated from a soil sample in North Carolina, USA) and Heterorhabditis amazonensis JPM 4 (isolated from a soil sample in Lavras, Minas Gerais, Brazil), maintained in aqueous suspension (500 IJs/ml) at 16 [+ or -] 1[grados]C at the Laboratory of Insect Pathology, Federal University of Lavras, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

This new fungal species, Isaria poprawskii, was named in memory of the late Tadeusz Poprawski, a former BIRU scientist known worldwide for his work on insect pathology for microbial control of crop pests.
Developed to address the special needs of researchers working with non- mammalian cell lines, in particular insect cells, Guava ViaCount Flex can help accelerate work in vaccine research and commercial vaccine production, as well as in studies of insect pathology and disease states, all of which increasingly rely on insect cell cultures.
The intricate graphics-- which model the spread through a corn-field of moth larvae called corn borers, and their parasites called microsporidia-- are based on 700,000 numbers and 68 years of literature in insect pathology.
It is also useful as a laboratory manual for courses in insect pathology and biological control and related areas of study.
