New Cryptosporidium parvum Monoclonal Antibodies Available
Cryptosporidium parvum is a major worldwide cause of gastrointestinal diarrheal disease. This is due in great part to the environmental resilience of its infectious Oocyst stage. These cysts are resistant to the usual levels of chlorine used to disinfect swimming pools and treated wastewater. They are also resistant to freezing and changes in pH. Infection occurs via the fecal-oral route when the cysts are ingested. During infection, large quantities of new cysts are shed in the feces.
ViroStat has just released two new Rabbit Monoclonal Antibodies that are reactive with Oocysts of Cryptosporidium parvum. These MabyRabs™ are specific to a cell wall glyco-antigen of the cyst. They form a pair to detect low levels of cysts by ELISA. They also stain the cysts by immunofluorescence and have potential in other immunoassay detection methods.
