Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

DNA was isolated from oocysts of Crytosporidium parvum, Iowa (A) isolate, obtained through the AIDS reagent program of NIAID.
Oocysts were originally isolated from the feces of a calf near Ames, Iowa in the mid-1980's and have been passaged continually in calves in Arizona since that time.
