RHODES, E., L. F. VILLEGAS, N. J. Shaw, C. Miller, AND E. VILLEGAS. A Modified EPA Method 1623 that Uses Tangential Flow Hollow-Fiber Ultrafiltration and Heat Dissociation Steps to Detect Waterborne Cryptosporidum and Giardia spp. Journal of Visualized Experiments . JoVE, Somerville, MA, 65:E4177, (2012).

Impact/Purpose:

The overall objective of this task is the development of improved occurrence detection methods for protozoan parasites and Microsporidia. Since this work is a primary focus of the Branch, this task supports several individual projects related to sample preparation and protozoan detection. Together these projects will lead to complete methods able to support the UCMR and CCL3.

Description:

This protocol describes the use of a tangential flow hollow-fiber ultrafiltration sample concentration system and a heat dissociation as alternative steps for the detection of waterborne Cryptosporidium and Giardia species using EPA Method 1623.
