Perfringens spores in finished water may indicate the potential for protozoan cysts to have passed through the treatment process. International standardised methods are available (ISO 6461-1; 6461-2) and methods for detection of clostridia are relatively easy to perform, even though a simple pasteurisation step is required for the enumeration of spores and strict anaerobic conditions are needed for Clostridium perfringens. Clostridia detection only requires a basic routine bacteriology laboratory.
