Abstract
Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray energy spectroscopy (SEM/XES) were used to survey the biological and nonbiological particles in two different municipal drinking-water systems. Microbiological particles could be differentiated from nonbiological by their qualitative elemental compositions and this information was used as the basis for an automated detection scheme. Automated SEM/XES analyses were used to demonstrate microbiological differences between well-water and surface-water in distribution systems. (Copyright (c) Zbl. Bakt. Hyg. B183, 511-529 (1987).)
