Isolate® offers unique, semi automated immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of Cryptosporidium oocysts in environmental water samples. 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 Fluorescent antibody stain, and visualised by fluorescence microscopy.
