The efficiency of point of use devices for the exclusion of Giardia muris cysts from a model water supply system

Advances in Giardia research: 107-112

The efficiency of point of use devices for the exclusion of Giardia muris cysts from a model water supply system

A recycling water system was developed which could circulate water free of particles larger than 0.22 micro m through various point of use water treatment devices including ultraviolet light, reverse osmosis, ozone, granulated activated carbon and proprietary faucet attachment systems. Once operating, the recycling water was charged with viable G. muris cysts and the ability of the various devices to kill and/or exclude the cysts was monitored under various conditions.
