Filter bacteria out of a water sample in 10 minutes using a (hand)pump. The bacteria are conserved in the filter, sample is ready for DNA isolation. Conserved filters can also be collected during the day for analyses in e.g. a hotel or an office.
The DNA is isolated from the filter in a few steps, taking 15 minutes per sample. DNA isolation is simultaneously done for multiple bacteria in the same sample using the same protocol.
Use the mobile qPCR device to get quantitative, digital results within 50 minutes. During analyzing, no further handling is needed.
