Abstract:

The objectives of this procedure are to describe methods of preparation and QC testing of water used in microbiology laboratories and to compare water specifications published by the NCCLS ( ), the American Society for Testing and Materials, the Environmental Protection Agency ( ), the American Public Health Association-American Water Works Association-Water Pollution Control Federation ( ), CAP ( ), the American Chemical Society, and the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention.
