Effect of pulsed UV light on waterborne bacterial pathogens

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.
