Solid phase cytometry (SPC) in conjunction with fluorescent viability staining has been investigated as a tool to detect viable but non-culturable Campylobacter jejuni in drinking water. Inoculated water samples were filtered over a polyester membrane filter and the retained cells were stained using a carboxyfluorescein ester as a substrate for intracellular esterases. The number of green fluorescent bacteria was automatically counted by an Ar laser scanning device (ChemScan) in 3 min. In… CONTINUE READING
