Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts may reach soil through direct deposition of human or animal fecal material, irrigation with raw wastewater or untreated effluents, and contaminated runoff. Examination of soil samples for oocyst presence is of primary importance in order to prevent secondary contamination of crops and groundwater. Several methods were proposed for oocyst recovery from soil samples; however, their efficiency was very low. In the present study, four known methods used to recover… CONTINUE READING
