  1. Comamonas acidovorans contamination of dental unit waters.

    Article - En anglais

    A study was carried out to evaluate the extent of the colonization of dental water systems by Comamonas acidovorans and to investigate how the occurrence of these bacteria is related to certain water characteristics.

    The 152 water samples were collected from the oral rinsing cup, air-water syringe, turbine and supply lines to dental units.

    Comamonas acidovorans was found most frequently and in greatest quantities in samples taken from water entering the units and in samples with a lower total bacterial count at 22 °C, higher temperature, lower content of organic matter and, in general, higher concentrations of residual chlorine.
