The in-field filtration kit contains all consumables to filter 50 water samples in the field. The water bag and the filters are connected to the vacuum hand pump (U20025). After filtration, the filter is treated for DNA isolation. After preservation, the filter can be stored outside the refrigerator for one week, at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
The importance of this qPCR measurement is that we can measure the quality of swimming water on the day itself instead of 3 days before.
