Biofilms in drinking water systems

Microorganisms in biofilms can include bacteria (including coccoid round, rod-shaped, filamentous, and appendaged bacteria), fungi, and higher organisms like nematodes, larvae, and Crustacea. Recently, researchers have shown that viruses and parasites like Cryptosporidium can be trapped in biofilms. Although viruses and Cryptosporidium do not grow in a biofilm, they can attach to biofilms after a contamination event. Therefore, it is important to thoroughly flush the distribution system to remove these organisms following a contamination event.

It is needless to emphasize the importance of water in our life. Without water, there is  no life on our planet.  We need water for different purposes. We need water for drinking, for industries, for irrigation, for swimming and fishing, etc. Water for different purposes has its own requirements as to composition and purity. Each body of water needs to be analysed on a regular basis to confirm to suitability. The types of analysis could vary from simple field testing for a single analyte to laboratory based multi-component instrumental analysis. The measurement of water quality is a very exacting and time-consuming process, and a large number of quantitative analytical methods are used for this Purpose.

OMICS International is organizing  International Conference on Water microbiology during July, 18-19, 2016, in Chicago, USA. The theme of the conference is “New developments and challenges for the future: Era of water microbiology”. This congress is expecting audience such as experts from Microbiology, Water technologist, Water microbiologist, instrumentation technology, applied microbiology, and doctors, experts from academics as well as industrialists.

OMICS International is an amalgamation of Open Access Publications and worldwide international science conferences and events. Established in the year 2007 with the sole aim of making the information on Sciences and technology "Open Access", OMICS International publishes 700 online open access scholarly journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. OMICS International has been instrumental in taking the knowledge on Science & technology to the doorsteps of ordinary men and women. Research Scholars, Students, Libraries, Educational Institutions, Research centers and the industry are main stakeholders that benefitted greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS International also organizes 1000 International conferences annually across the globe, where knowledge transfer takes place through debates, round table discussions, poster presentations, workshops, symposia and exhibitions.

A biofilm is a surface deposit of bacteria, other microorganisms, and organic and inorganic materials that accumulatewithin a slime layer. Biofilms can form on solid and liquid surfaces when nutrients and water are present.Much like the plaque that forms on teeth, biofilms also form inside drinking water distribution systems andcan sometimes cause a number of problems.
