Bluephage Easy Kits products for ISO or US-EPA analysis are a ready-to-use solution for standard methods to save time in the analysis process and get results at record speed.   

Bluephage is a reference company in the biotechnology sector specializing in microbiological water analysis products to offer safe water for a better world.

For more than three decades, the MARS group at the University of Barcelona has been studying bacteriophages as indicators of the microbiological quality of water, since detecting coliphages as a viral indicator allows the detection of other pathogenic viruses that may appear in the environment but in lower concentrations. Thus, monitoring this viral indicator can prevent some diseases related to human viruses.

Standardized methods for coliphage detection have been available for more than 30 years, with ISO and US-EPA being the most widely adopted internationally. Now, at Bluephage, we have simplified and accelerated the coliphage enumeration process with our product line.

ISO 10705-2 specifies a method for detecting and quantifying somatic coliphages, respectively. According to ISO methods, the Bluephage product portfolio consists of an all-in-one kit, prepared biological material, and powdered media to save time and resources for coliphage enumeration.
