LP533401 hcl Standard methods used to test

The genera enumerated by any of these methods are highly variable since the cultivation medium of choice, incubation temperature and time, origin (river, surface water reservoir, treated and disinfected drinking water, etc.), season of the year, and age of the water sample all have a significant effect on which genera will grow under Gaia selected conditions ( Allen et al., 2004). These factors, in addition to the time taken to acquire results, have stimulated research into more reliable, all-encompassing, more rapid methods of detection, such as the use of flow cytometry (e.g. Veal et al., 2000, Hammes et al., 2008 and Prest et al., 2013).
