Despite the tremendous efforts in developing effective on-site biosecurity and best management practices, waterborne parasites still cause significant health and economic burden worldwide. Early and rapid diagnosis together with an understanding of disease severity is critical for preventing parasite spread and enabling effective management strategies. Current routine diagnostic tests for waterborne parasites are not suitable for on-site detection. Shiddiky Laboratory is working on developing novel biosensing platform devices for the quantification and genotyping of waterborne parasites in surface and recreational waters. The device can be used to ensure improved waterborne parasite management, risk prediction, and rapid mitigation of impending outbreaks.
