Oligonucleotide probes specific to Cryptosporidium parvum (CRY1) were conjugated with a range of fluorochromes. The fluorescence after in situ hybridization (FISH) labelling of oocysts and controls was assessed. The objective was to determine the most suitable conjugate for FISH labelling, followed by analysis with a 488 nm laser flow cytometer. The most promising candidate was fluorescein isothiocyanate but only when linked to the CRY1 probe via an 18-carbon spacer arm consisting of six… CONTINUE READING
