Bacteriophage Testing

BioVir has become a leading provider of bacteriophage (bacterial virus) testing and biologic (seed stock) for challenge studies and research on various types of processes in drinking water and wastewater treatment nationwide. The bacterial virus MS2 has gained considerable appeal as a surrogate challenge organism for the enteric group of viruses in process efficacy studies (particularly in U.V. Disinfection) due to its similar physical size to polio virus and its innocuous public health effect. BioVir can provide its clients with a complete phage study package including MS-2 seed stock and phage testing services.
