Crypto testing

Mon May 22 06:18:52 EST 1995

I have no idea how many tests for Crypto and Giardia are performed 
annually in the USA, but, based on the queries to our Clinical 
Parasitology Laboratory, there is a large demand.  During the past 
few years we have seen more and more Crypto and Giardia in livestock 
(mainly calves, but also horses, etc.) and hear of many cases in 
human beings.  Many of the local physicians recommend that well water 
be tested and that streams, rivers, and lakes be tested since they 
suspect that these were the source of infection.
