Continuous Flow Centrifuge

• Approved by USEPA for Cryptosporidium concentration

• Multiple pathogen concentration

• Accommodates turbid water samples

 

SMI’s CFC utilizes an innovative centrifugation technology that is

EPA-approved for the concentration of Cryptosporidium from surface

water samples and is particularly effective with water samples that

have high turbidities. In November 2004, CFC received EPA Tier 2

approval, making CFC available to all laboratories that provide

Cryptosporidium testing under the Long-Term 2 Enhanced Surface

Water Treatment Rule.
