Abstract

Non-culturable Vibrio cholerae O139 was detected in microcosms by PCR and fluorescent-antibody (FA) techniques. When survival of V. cholerae O139 in microcosms was assessed by viable counting on culture media, the vibrio became non-culturable after 44 days and remained non-culturable for an additional 7 weeks.
