Author Affiliations +
Most of the biodetection technologies available on the market have the potential to test water samples for pathogens. Yet municipal water laboratories have been challenging markets for biodetection systems. This manuscript will provide an overview of biodetection technologies that might be useful to municipal water facilities, the types of pathogens and indicators that water laboratories are generally interested in detecting and hardware requirements for biological detection systems that may potentially be used in a municipal water laboratory.
