Background:  Cryptosporidium parvum is one of several protozoal species that cause cryptosporidiosis, a parasitic disease of the mammalian intestinal tract.It is a zoonotic and obligate intracellular parasite. Primary symptoms of C. parvum infection are acute, watery, and non-bloody diarrhea. Extra-intestinal sites include the lung, liver and gall bladder where it causes respiratory cryptosporidosis, hepatitis and cholecystitis. Infection is caused by ingestion of sporulated oocysts transmitted by the faecal-oral route.

Description:  ParoReal® Kit Cryptosporidium parvum uses real-time PCR for the detection of the GP60 gene of Cryptosporidium parvum. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG).
