Diagnosis of Giardia and Cryptosporidium Infection in Children with Diarrheal Illness Using Rapid Immunochromatographic Assay

Crypt/Giardia assay (Meridian Bioscience, Inc.) in comparison to composite reference standard (CRS) of both wet mount microscopy and ELISA copro-antigen assay in the diagnosis of both pathogens.
