Drinking water

Clean drinking water is one of the most important necessities of life on earth. The supply of clean, fresh drinking water has been under pressure for years due to excessive use, soil remediation, etcetera. The quality of drinking water is of vital importance.

Microbial contamination of drinking water is one of the major threats to public health. Pathogenic water bacteria such as Salmonella and V. Chlolera still make many victims every year. Other bacterial species, such as E. Coli, Campylobacter species and Cryptosporidium can also threaten drinking water quality. Legionella can continue to grow in pipes that contain stagnant water and become warm.

The microbiological quality of drinking water can be well determined with ORVIdetect qPCR analyses.

The major advantages of ORVIdetect qPCR over conventional culture techniques are:

  • Speed
  • Specificity
  • Multiple analyzes on the same sample possible
  • Widely applicable
  • Simple logistics (preservation possible, refrigeration not necessary)
  • DNA extracts can be stored, allowing for later (re)analysis

Our ambition is to make DNA techniques more and more available on site and locally. Drinking water quality analyzes can be performed by us (ORVIdetect qPCR) or you can perform them independently, flexibly and locally with Orvion Udetect®
