International Association on Water Quality. Biennial conference. Budapest HUN, 1994/07/24.
This volume is the latest in the series reporting on the scientific advances in the field of Health-related Water Microbiology.
The Budapest Symposium of the Health-related Water Microbiology group of the IAWQ exceeded all expectations in that there were over 150 presentations at the Symposium from contributors in more than 50 countries.
Manuscripts for 120 of the presentations were received, 84 of which are presented here.
The inactivation of bacteria and viruses using conventional and novel disinfection processes and the ability of microorganisms to survive under a range of environmental conditions has been investigated.
The potential use of bacteriophages as indicators of viral pollution continues to be researched.
Bacterial and viral monitoring of the aquatic environment is now increasingly using molecular-based techniques, particularly the PCR technique.
This is being applied to the detection of a whole range of viruses including those currently unable to be cultured by conventional means.
This volume carries first reports of astrovirus and « Norwalk-type virus » detection in environmental samples using PCR.
Parasite research continues, also with increased use of PCR technology, while the importance of shellfish as a source of water-derived viral infection is still apparent.
