Development of a new and an innovative method for the sensitive and selective detection of Legionella in water systems

Description

The aim of the research project is to protect the most important nutrient "water" against microbial contamination and to warn the consumer promptly in case of contamination with an early warning system. The preservation of our drinking water quality and the protection of consumers is a key objective of the FTI strategy adopted by the Province of Lower Austria and this project is intended to contribute to this. A suitable monitoring and early warning system in the form of an intelligent, automatic sensor should enable a rapid assessment of an impending contamination with Legionella. This will provide sufficient time to take appropriate countermeasures to protect consumers from potential hazards. ** This project is cofinaced by the government of lower Austria and EFRE (www.efre.gv.at).
