Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Over many years, various methods have been developed for water treatment and disinfection. Recent advances have indicated that pulsed UV-rich light technology represents a novel treatment that can be exploited to inactivate waterborne pathogens. In this study, four Gram negative organisms of concern in water microbiology were compared for their susceptibilities to pulsed UV light.
