||Quantitation of free-living amoebae and bacterial populations in eyewash stations relative to flushing frequency
||July 1996, Vol.57, No.7, p.626-633. Illus. 28 ref.
||This study investigated amoebic and bacterial populations in eyewash station water relative to various flushing regimens. Amoeba concentrations (of genus Hartmannella and Acanthamoeba) averaged approximately 200 amoebae/100mL in 13 of 15 stations. Bacterial concentrations ranged from 0 to more than 100.000 colony forming units per mL. Weekly 3-minute flushes appeared to be more effective in maintaining lowered bacterial, but not amoebic, concentrations.
