Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) to monitor SARS-CoV-2 has rapidly expanded

across the globe as data has shown that WBE trends correlate with clinical case trends. The success of WBE with SARS-CoV-2 has led to interest in monitoring additional pathogens, including eukaryotes such as parasitic organisms and multi-drug resistant yeast. The CDC has identified several of these pathogens as emerging threats including Candida auris and several infection-causing parasitic organisms.

In this poster, we describe how we use the Nanotrap® Microbiome B Particles, a new, magnetic particle-based automation-friendly method to enable improved detection of eukaryotic pathogens such as Candida auris, Cryptosporidium parvum, and Giardia lamblia in wastewater samples.
