Various cell targets used for non-culture-based methods and culture-based phenotypic methods to detect microorganisms from water (from Sen and Ashbolt []). PFGE pulse field gel electrophoresis, RAPD random amplified polymorphic DNA, AFLP amplified fragment length polymorphism, MALDI-TOF matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight, NASBA nucleic acid sequence-based amplification, FISH fluorescent in situ, hybridization, rRNA ribosomal ribonucleic acid. *Represents RNA from 18S rRNA present in eukaryotes such as protozoa, or 16S rRNA present in bacteria
