Isolate® for IMS of Cryptosporidium oocysts
- Semi Automated Immunomagnetic Separation
- Yields High Recoveries in Dirty Water Samples
- Processes Pellets up to 2ml in Volume
Isolate® offers unique, semi automated immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of Cryptosporidium (Crypto IMS). The unique automation of the Isolate® test standardises the rocking motion, resulting in improved consistency and reliability of results.
Isolate® yields increased recoveries of oocysts and produces good results even when using dirty water samples. In addition Isolate® is able to process pellets up to 2 ml in volume, reducing the need for split samples and multiple slides.
Cryptosporidium oocysts in the concentrate are captured and separated by magnetic action. Separated oocysts are stained with an approved FITC antibody stain, and visualised by fluorescence microscopy.
