Bactiquant quantifies bacterial presence by measuring enzyme activity using a sensitive fluorescence technology. The enzyme is located within the surface of the bacterial cell, and can be reached by the added substrate without the need of cell lysis or extraction; hence the needed chemistry is very simple and robust. The assay ensures highly accurate and reproducible results, making the method highly suitable for monitoring dental unit water quality.
BQ-value indicates the bacterial load in the water sample, and studies have shown that with increasing BQ-values the risk of the presence of Legionella increases as well.
