Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0202811A2] The invention concerns a method for controlling the microbiological quality of an environmental aqueous medium, suspected of containing various micro-organisms, comprising the following steps: selecting a reference set, consisting of at least three micro-organisms, representing jointly or separately, a microbiological quality level; providing a microbiological detection kit, consisting of at least three probes specifically and respectively identifying said three micro-organisms; after treating the medium to be analysed, contacting said micro-organisms, or any fraction thereof derived from the medium to be analysed therefrom, with said detection kit, whereby a multiple determination of said micro-organisms is carried out, said determination representing the microbiological quality level of the medium. The invention also concerns an appropriate microbiological detection kit for implementing said method.
