Biodosimetry is a new testing procedure for UV systems used to disinfect water. It is the first standardised test method for such systems that has been proven in test stand comparison with respect to practicality and reproducibility. The method is unique in that the reactor geometry and the different types of UV lamps are objectively incorporated into the determination of the microbiological performance. All results that follow this report are the result of practical experiments with the biodosimetry: test between two laboratories, the comparison of different reactor design and different types of UV lamps.
