Contact with contaminated soils has been identified as a possible mechanism of giardiasis infection. The inadequacy of current methods to reliably detect pathogens in waste highlights the need for development of new tools. Some molecular-based methods have been developed for the detection of pathogens in soils, compost products and biosolids. The new achievements will be reviewed and their application in the context of waste management discussed.
