Parameters affecting polymerase chain reaction detection of waterborne Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts

Abstract

Cryptosporidium parvum is an enteric protozoan parasite of medical and veterinary importance. Dissemination of environmentally resistant oocysts in surface water plays an important role in the epidemiology of cryptospridiosis. Although the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a well-established technique and is widely used for detecting microorganisms, it is… (More)
