Why Coliphages

In general, bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria and are extremely abundant in nature, probably the most abundant life form on Earth. In particular, bacteriophages outnumber bacteria in most habitats studied including microbial communities associated with humans and animals.
In a facility with filters, membranes or other technology, monitoring of bacteriophages provides greater safety than that of bacteria, due to their size (smaller than bacteria) and greater abundance.
