Flow cytometry is increasingly employed by drinking water providers. Its use with appropriate fluorescent stains allows the distinction between intact and membrane-damaged bacteria, which makes it ideally suited for assessment of disinfection efficiency. In contrast to plate counting, the technology allows the visualization of the gradual loss of membrane integrity. Although this sensitivity per se is very positive, it creates the problem of how this detailed viability information compares with… CONTINUE READING
