This correspondence describes the successful development of methods for the recovery, isolation and detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts in wastewater and biosolids. Wastewater from one plant was used to optimize methods in raw influent as well as primary, secondary and tertiary effluents. Raw influents and primary effluents were concentrated using centrifugation followed by isolation of Cryptosporidium oocysts using immunomagnetic separation (IMS) and detection of recovered organisms using… CONTINUE READING
