Identifying Cryptosporidium using DNA methods
Cryptosporidium is an intestinal parasite found in humans and animals. It multiplies within the surface layers of the host's small intestine, causing damage which may lead to severe diarrhoea. When this tiny (5 μm) single-celled protozoan parasite leaves its host, a tough outer shell favours its survival during routine water and wastewater disinfection and treatment.
