This book gives an overview of advanced emerging technologies for the detection of a range of waterborne pathogens. The book will present existing methodology and highlight where improvements can be made, as well as have a strong focus on applications and the ways in which new technology could be applied in water management. Additionally, it addresses issues of sample preparation (from sampling through to concentration and enrichment), a key stage in any detection protocol. It covers the gap of specific sound methods of pathogen detection by fulfulling the need for a concept book on the novel technologies for pathogen detection in water. It presents all cutting-edge technologies for pathogen detection in water as well as recent emerging technologies. It addresses all three types of pathogens, this combined knowledge provides to understand all potential pathogens in waters.
