Cryptosporidium propidium monoazide-PCR, a molecular biology-based technique for genotyping of viable Cryptosporidium oocysts.

Cryptosporidium is a crucial waterborne protozoan parasite that may trigger extreme diarrhea and demise within the immunocompromised. The present strategies used to observe for Cryptosporidium oocysts in water are the microscopy-based USEPA strategies 1622 and 1623. These strategies assess complete ranges of oocysts in supply waters, however don’t decide oocyst viability or genotype. Recently, propidium …
