Cryptosporidium/Giardia Detection in Water

Envirochek and Envirochek HV Sampling Capsules on Lab ShakerPatented Envirochek® HV sampling capsules are designed for 100% capture and > 70% recovery of Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts from source or finished water. The protocol is faster, safer, and simpler than other methods, and allows for processing of up to eight samples at once using Pall’s laboratory shaker. 

  • Approved by regulatory agencies worldwide for Cryptosporidium and Giardia monitoring, including U.S. EPA methods 1622 and 1623, United Kingdom DWI standard operating protocols, and ISO/DIS 15553:2006. 
  • Field-friendly design allows for a lower pressure source than competitive products, and is easier to transport and handle. Each capsule has a unique serial number for traceability.
  • Disposable design eliminates false positives from cross-contamination; 1 µm pore size membrane ensures complete capture of the organisms, eliminating false negatives.   
  • Designed to eliminate human contact with organisms. No filter holder assembly or cleaning is required. Self-contained capsule’s filter element does not need to be handled.
