Laboratory validation of Automated Intestinal Parasite Diagnostic System (DAPI) for detection of Cryptosporidium spp. is the general aim of this project. Sequential experiments will be carried out by the purification of fecal samples containing oocysts of this parasite (with molecular confirmation). Then, it will be made a study for the adequacy of TF-Test Coccidia technique to build a bank of 500 images to train the classifier in the DAPI system pattern recognition module to validate the automated imaging diagnosis of this parasitic genus. For this, fecal samples of 1,000 children from pre-schools and their respective dogs will be used. The results obtained will be evaluated by means of statistical comparison between DAPI system and visual analysis using an established manual technique: TF-Test Coccidia. (AU)
