  • Quantitative real-time PCR does not reliably detect single fecal indicator bacteria in drinking water

    The microbial quality of drinking and environmental water is usually determined by culture-based detection of fecal indicator bacteria according to ISO reference methods 16649-1 and 7899-2, respectively. Because of an increasing demand for rapid, culture-independent methods, we tested three quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) approaches for the simultaneous detection of both, ...

  • Detection of Legionella by cultivation and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in biological waste water treatment plants in Norway

    Cases of Legionnaires' disease associated with biological treatment plants (BTPs) have been reported in six countries between 1997 and 2010. However, knowledge about the occurrence of Legionella in BTPs is scarce. Hence, we undertook a qualitative and quantitative screening for Legionella in BTPs treating waste water from municipalities and industries in Norway, to ...

  • Pathway‐based approaches for assessment of real‐time exposure to an estrogenic wastewater treatment plant effluent on fathead minnow reproduction

    Wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents are known contributors of chemical mixtures into the environment. Of particular concern are endocrine‐disrupting compounds, such as estrogens, that can affect hypothalamic‐pituitary‐gonadal axis function in exposed organisms. The present study examined reproductive effects in fathead minnows exposed for 21 d to a historically estrogenic WWTP ...

HACH LANGE analysers therefore offer a range of options ...


  • Analysing four of the most contaminated foodstuffs

    Food adulteration has been around since the Victorian times when cheese was often coloured with lead salts, beer and milk were watered down and flour was bulked out with chalk dust or ground bones [1]. Governments apply stringent legislation and quality standards to food products but the practice of adulteration, driven by greed and profit, is still seen. ...

  • Different cost-benefit analyses in The Netherlands for the European Water Framework Directive

    Since 2005, several cost benefit analyses have been performed for the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) in The Netherlands. These analyses had in common that they were meant to support the decision-making process by informing policy makers and making the trade-offs as transparent as possible. The analyses also anticipate questions from the Dutch Parliament. Nevertheless, each time the ...

  • The Practical Application of Fine Time Increment, Diurnal, Nitrate Analyses Using Portable In Situ UV Spectrometers in an Effluent Dominated Urban Stream

     ABSTRACT Many wastewater facilities use a nitrifying biological process to eliminate or reduce ammonia concentrations which are toxic to fauna in their receiving water. One byproduct of this process is nitrate. Nitrate is generally non-toxic to fauna in receiving streams at levels produced by a nitrification process. However, chronic exposures of 10mg/L NO3-N, or greater, may produce ...
