Detection of Cryptosporidium oocytes on lettuce and raspberries

The aim of this study was to compare two previously tested buffers and three extraction methods to find out if any combination was superior for detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts on lettuce and raspberries. No significant differences between use of different buffers or extraction methods were found and thus, no combination can be said to be
superior to the others. To find any differences, investigations with a higher number of
replicates may be required. Stomacher® Bags were used as part of this study.
