Thus, considering the requirements of the International epizootic bureau (IEB), International trichinosis commission, the difficult endemic situation of trichinosis invasion in Ukraine, nowadays, the primary task is development and deployment of the modern methods of its diagnostics in practice of veterinary medicine.

«Universal diagnostic kit «Episkrin AB» (individual express-diagnostics of animals’ trichinosis) has high sensitivity and can detect the antibodies to Trichinella spiralis of pigs at the early stage of invasion, starting from 8–17 days after contamination. It is impossible to detect Trichinella larvae in the specified terms, using the methods of compressorium trichinelloscopia and muscles digestion in artificial gastric juice.

Trichinella spiralis antibodies in serum of experimentally infected pigs have been discovered in 8–22 days after infection with the help of «Diagnostic enzyme immunoassay test-system «Trichineliso test AB». It testifies a high sensitivity level of diagnostics.

«Universal diagnostic kit «Episkrin AB» allows to detect the antibodies in intra-muscular liquid and blood from the animals’ heart after slaughter them. This set is an express test, which can be used as trichinosis diagnosis of pigs, during their lives and/or after their slaughter, within 15 minutes. To recommend the use of «Diagnostic enzyme immunoassay test-system «Trichineliso test AB» and «Universal diagnostic kit «Episkrin AB» for intravital diagnosis of animals’ trichinosis. To introduce «Universal diagnostic kit «Episkrin AB» in practice of veterinary medicine for the trichinosis diagnosis before the slaughter of pigs and, if it is necessary, for serological studies of animal carcasses after slaughter them.

Key words: trichinosis invasion, diagnostics, the methods of compressorium trichinelloscopia and muscles digestion in artificial gastric juice, the help of EIA and 577-analysis method.
