ARN-f specific bacteriophages
ARN-f specific bacteriophages are commonly tested for in water because this virus is a treatment indicator.
A French decree of June 25th (2014) requests the analyses of treated water from urban waste water treatment plants when they are used for irrigation. The analysis must be performed before and after the water treatment plant to calculate an allowance.
Other parameters are analyzed in the same time as anaerobic sulphite reducing bacteria spores and Enterococcus.
