Coliform (bacterial contamination testing)
Monitoring recreational/surface water and waste water is subject to special requirements in order to best protect the environment and public health. It is beneficial to have a rapid field test which can provide early warning of bacterial contamination, instead of waiting for the 24-48 hour turnaround for results from a laboratory.
The Colifast Handheld Microdetector, available for purchase through Colifast, provides a rapid field test of bacterial contamination in recreational surface water and waste water. The Colifast method is based on an enzymatic reaction.
