Cryptosporidium and Giardia are protozoan parasites that infect and replicate within a host’s intestine where they develop into the transmissible stages, oocysts and cysts.  Infection is characterised by gastroenteritis and diarrhoea of varying severity and duration with oocysts and cysts being shed in large numbers in faeces.  Shed oocysts and cysts are immediately infective but can also survive for several months in the environment.

ALS Water and Environmental laboratories provide NATA accredited analysis of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in waters (ground, surface and potable), wastewaters, recycled water and animal scat in Victoria and NSW.
