Concentrating Pipette Shines in Emergency Drinking Water Preparedness Study

October 17, 2023

Researchers from the College of Public Health, at Ohio State University, published a study in Environmental Advances (Oct 2023), called Advanced preparedness for drinking water emergency: Ensuring safe microbial quality with rapid microbial source tracking and E. coli methods. In the study, they compared the current microbial quality study that relies on a 24 hour culture time for e. Coli detection, against a new method using the Concentrating Pipette paired with rapid molecular methods (PCR) for detection of multiple target organisms. The new method proved to be more comprehensive for a variety of drinking water quality disasters as well as shortening the time to detection to 6 hours.
