The Biomerica Cryptosporidium ELISA is intended for the qualitative detection of Cryptosporidium-specific antigen (CSA) in fecal specimens. This assay is intended for in vitro diagnostic use only. Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite commonly found in animals. It is considered an important pathogenic organism in domestic farm animals – particularly in calves. Historically, cryptosporidium was thought to cause diarrhea in animals only, until the first case of human infection was
reported in 1976. Since that time, this parasite has been associated with diarrheal disease throughout the world. It is particularly prevalent in tropical developing countries and has been known to cause epidemics of diarrhea among children. Cryptosporidium is often the cause of travelers’
diarrhea.
