Abstract:

In view of the fact that many authors propose various methods for speeding up a particular stage in the analysis of water for the presence of pathogenic bacteria or completely replace the direct determination of bacteria by indirect methods which indicate the level of seeding of the water. The authors decided to solve the problem regarding speeding up the analysis by reducing the time in a number of stages during the study. Thus, it has been established that among the well-known methods for concentrating bacteria from water. The most improved method is the one where bacteria are concentrated via filtration through membrane filters and filters made from new synthetic materials, for example, filters of the type FPP-5.
