ISO 10705-2-2000 水质--噬菌体的检测和计数.第二部分:身体大肠菌噬体的计数. Water quality--Detection and enumeration of bacteriophages--Part 2:Enumeration of somatic coliphages
This part of ISO 10705 specifies a method for the detection and enumeration of somatic coliphages by incubating the sample with an appropriate host strain. The method is applicable to all kinds of water, sediments and sludge extracts, where necessary after dilution. The method is also applicable to shellfish extracts. In the case of low phage numbers, a preconcentration step may be necessary for which a separate International Standard will be developed. NOTE It is desirable for International Standards to be adopted as widely as possible. This part of ISO 10705 includes reference to alternative procedures which obviate the need for expensive materials or equipment which may not be readily available in developing countries. Use of these alternatives will not affect the performance of this method.
