Titel: A Novel Approach for Quantifying Chlamydia trachomatis Elementary Bodies and Reticulate Bodies by Flow Cytometry

In this study the authors developed a highly reproducible flow cytometry-based method for quantification and viability assessment of Chlamydia trachomatis preparations. This novel approach enables a fast, cell culture-independent enumeration of C. trachomatis stocks and represents a valuable tool for planning subsequent down-stream experiments.

In this study we are going to determine the prevalence, abundance and distribution of Vibrio cholerae nonO1/nonO139 at selected bathing sites along spatiotemporal environmental gradients. Therefore we use newly developed “state of the art” methods to obtain solid quantitative data. By combining the obtained information with a large set of environmental parameters, we are going to design prediction models for the distribution, prevalence and abundance of Vibrio cholerae nonO1/nonO139 in bathing waters. The data will also fuel risk assessment models to assess the relevance of these pathogens for public health.
