A Flow Cytometry Method for Detecting Bacteria in Water

About this Webinar

Regulatory testing for microbiological water quality is often conducted by growing microbes on agar medium in visible colonies. However, this is a time-consuming process and not all bacteria can grow in media and therefore be detected using this method. Flow cytometers with a high sensitivity of detection provide tools for detecting and analysing microbes independent of their cultivability and allows precise and rapid determinations of microbial bulk parameters and delivers detailed information on the general microbial state.

During this webinar, we will cover:

1. Advantages of flow cytometry for microbiological water quality testing
2. How to determine absolute counts, nucleic acid content, activity, and classification of bacteria
3. Tips on running a flow cytometry experiment for microbial analysis
4. Data analysis of treated water samples using the NovoExpress software
