qPCR quantification and genetic characterization of Clostridium perfringens populations in biosolids composted for 2 years.

Abstract

AIM The ability of Clostridium perfringens to survive for a long time in the environment makes it a suitable indicator of faecal pollution, but its use as a routine indicator organism in biosolids and composted biosolids has not yet been adopted. This study was performed to improve our understanding of C. perfringens persistence in composted biosolids by… (More)
