    Abstract

    A two-color fluorescence in situ hybridization assay that allows for the simultaneous identification of Cryptosporidium parvum and C. hominis was developed. The assay is a simple, rapid, and cost-effective tool for the detection of the major Cryptosporidium species of concern to public health.
