Abstract:

Responding to the Department of Defense requests for improvements in the concentration of multiple waterborne pathogens, a proposal was submitted by both parties to design and construct a compact, portable automated device enabling the simultaneous concentration of protozoa, bacteria, bacterial spores, algae and viruses from large volumes of various matrices. The first prototype, named CFC100A, is a portable, selfcontained device and the process of sample concentration and elution is completely automated. It can easily be programmed to concentrate from 1 1000L.
