Dr. Stibbs at Tulane University has a small company that supplies exotic
parasites including Cryptosporidium from calves, for a fairly reasonable
price; I've also gotten some from Kansas State's S. Upton, and Arizona's C.
Sterling.  At the Tulane primate center, Liz Didier grows in culture many of
the Microsporidia, and has supplied living and fixed material to commercial
and academic users, including myself.
