Detection of Escherichia coli in potable water using personal glucose meters

Author affiliations

Abstract

This communication describes the applicability of personal glucose meters for regularly monitoring the quality of potable water. We have demonstrated a simple method that can accurately detect very low levels of E. coli contamination in water and has the potential to be developed into a comprehensive test kit, which can provide both qualitative and quantitative results.
