Specialist Services

Cryptosporidium Analysis

In meeting your regulatory Cryptosporidium and Giardia specification, ALS Environmental can provide our clients with UKAS and DWTS accredited analysis from our Coventry and Wakefield laboratories.

Due to the significant potential of hazards to human health we are able to provide results for Cryptosporidium and Giardia on various turnaround times, with some samples being reported in under 24 hours from sampling. This service must be pre-booked and can be vital in a potential outbreak scenario arising.

To ensure our customers receive legally defensible results, ALS Environmental participate in a monthly External Quality Assurance scheme demonstrating excellent recovery levels and Microscopic identification from our expert analysts.

We can perform Cryptosporidium testing on samples taken from:

  • Drinking water
  • Surface water - such as Rivers
  • Recreational water- such as Swimming pools
  • Water treatment works
  • Gravel or sand sites

We can also provide a Cryptosporidium identification service which will categorise any isolated Cryptosporidium into Cryptosporidium parvum or hominis and other genotypes.
