Coliphages are the new microbiological parameter included in the revision of the European Directive on Water for Human Consumption and European Directive on Water Reuse and thus it is very important for anyone working with water to be properly acquainted with them. Our unique and insightful Coliphage Training Days take place three times a year (February, June, September) in the labs of the University of Barcelona Biology Department and presents an excellent chance to learn how to analyse coliphages. You will discover the simple, fast and effective Bluephage Methods for coliphage detection and enumeration. Each and every instructor boasts a wealth of experience after many years of working with not only coliphages but in the field of Water Microbiology in general, placing them in the best possible position to deliver to you the optimal training for any work with coliphages. In addition to this, you will learn about the latest regulations regarding water analysis and the role coliphages play in them.
