Project Facilities, Equipment
This USGS project's resources include two epifluorescent research microscopes with computer controlled image capture/sizing, full microbial culture capabilities with access to anaerobic chambers, an HPLC, and a state-of-the-art flow cytometer with real time microbial cell counting and sizing capabilities. Clean hood, high speed centrifuge, bacterial/protozoan/virus culture materials, and flow-column equipment are all available. We maintain several bacterial and virus stocks for use in injection and recovery experiments. We have recently begun to assay groundwater for pathogenic organisms (Cryptosporidium/Giardia, coliform, enteric virus, coliphage) and have some expertise in water quality assessments.
