1995). Hence, PCR technology has been considered for the detection of foodborne and waterborne pathogens and parasites in water, wastewater, and food. Examples of pathogens and parasites detected by PCR are invasive Shigella flexneri, enterotoxigenic E. , 2003). Multiplex PCR using several sets of primers allows the simultaneous detection of gene sequences of several pathogens or different genes within the same organism. , 1993). Polymerase chain reaction was also used to amplify lacZ and uidA genes for the detection of total coliforms (b-galactosidase producers) and E.

A well-known sporozoan is Plasmodium vivax, which causes malaria. 4 Viruses Viruses belong neither to prokaryotes nor to eukaryotes; they carry out no catabolic or anabolic function. Their replication occurs inside a host cell. The infected cells may be animal or plant cells, bacteria, fungi, or algae. Viruses are very small colloidal particles (25 – 350 nm) and most of them can be observed only with an electron microscope. 23 shows the various sizes and shapes of some viruses. 1 Virus Structure.

Some are parasitic to animals, including humans. Protozoa are heterotrophic organisms that can absorb soluble food that is transported across the cytoplasmic membrane. Others, the holozoic protozoa, are capable of engulfing particles such as bacteria. Ciliated protozoa use their cilia to move particles toward a mouthlike structure called a cytostome. , Paramecium). 22 Protozoa groups found in water and wastewater. The type of locomotion is a basis for classification of protozoa (Fig. 22). The medically important protozoa that may be transmitted through water and wastewater will be discussed in more detail in Chapter 4.
