Copper plumbing materials can be the source of copper ions in drinking water supplies. The aim of the current study was to investigate the influence of copper ions on the viability and cytotoxicity of the potential pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa that presents a health hazard when occurring in building plumbing systems. In batch experiments, exposure of P.(More)
The viable but non-culturable (VBNC) state of the opportunistic bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa was previously shown to be induced by copper ions in concentrations relevant to those in drinking water plumbing systems. This decrease of bacterial culturability without loss of viability might have an influence on human health due to an underestimation of the(More)
