A100FLR-20X Aqua-Glo™ G/C Direct Reagent Only Kit


A100FLR-20X Aqua-Glo™ G/C Direct Reagent Only Kit


The Aqua-Glo kit is designed to detect the cyst and oocyst stages of Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium parvum in particulates isolated from water and other environmental samples utilizing the principle of direct immunofluorescence.

 The antibody reagent consists of a mixture of fluorescein-labeled mouse monoclonal antibodies made to cyst and oocyst outer wall antigenic sites (epitopes) of Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium parvum. This reagent is genus-specific and will bind only to the cysts and oocysts of these two parasites if they are present.  The reagent shows varying degrees of cross-reactivity with cysts and oocysts of other species of Giardia and Cryptosporidium.  The cysts and/or oocysts will appear bright apple green when viewed under a fluorescence microscope using the appropriate filters for fluorescein. This antibody cross-reacts with some species of algae.
