Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9708204A1] A method of detecting the presence of viable Cryptosporidium oocysts in a sample containing Cryptosporidium oocysts, the method comprising the steps of a) treating the sample so as to cause any viable oocysts of Cryptosporidium in the sample to excyst, b) exposing the treated sample to an antibody that binds specifically to recently excysted Cryptosporidium oocysts such that the antibody binds to recently excysted Cryptosporidium oocysts in the sample, and c) detecting the presence of oocyst-bound antibody in the sample.
