Advancing Cryptosporidium parvum Detection Methodologies

Investigators
Jenkins, Mark
Institutions
USDA - Agricultural Research Service
Start date
1999
End date
2004
Objective
To develop diagnostic methods for detecting cryptosporidium parvum in water using molecular and immunological technologies. Dr. Jim Trout will also work on the project.

Four different types of technology will be studied to develop detection reagents for Cryptosporidium parvum in water. These technologies are: polymerase chain reaction (PCR), enzyme-linked mmunosorbent assay (ELISA), cell culture, and fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH).
