A Review of Chemical and Electrochemical Inactivation of Cryptosporidium

Price: £10  

Both ozone and medium pressure UV offer promise for oocyst inactivation. However, the inactivation option is not feasible for achieving the proposed Regulatory standard in the UK. This would not preclude it as part of an overall risk reduction strategy, however, particularly when the disinfectants may be installed for other purposes. At the present time there is disagreement over which of the techniques for assessing inactivation is the most valid, so that the benefits can be quantified. In the longer term, human cell culture techniques show promise in this respect. However, there is insufficient information currently available for confident design of systems for oocyst inactivation.
