Methods for the Detection and Enumeration of Pathogens in Biosolids

Price: £20  

A generic method has been developed for the resuscitation, detection and enumeration of bacterial pathogens. This provides a robust and flexible platform for pathogens in model digester systems, and in field trials. New methods for cryptosporidia and viruses have also been developed which are also applicable to such sample types. The methods allow enumeration of the target pathogens to be performed in the presence of high background levels of microorganisms. Although the methods were devised specifically for biosolids, the techniques are applicable to wide variety of organic wastes.
