Bacteria Test

Check your drinking, tap or other water for presence of bacteria

This bacteria test enables user to find out if the sample water contains coliform bacteria. Coliform bacteria are a commonly used bacterial indicator of sanitary quality of foods and water. They are defined as rod-shaped Gram-negative non-spore forming bacteria which can ferment lactose with the production of acid and gas when incubated at 3537C.
[American Public Health Association (APHA), Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater (19th ed.), APHA, Washington, DC (1995).]

Store the bacteria test in a cool dry place and use at room temperature (16C 28C or 60F 85F).

The kit contains a vial for testing presence of bacteria in water (see image on right).
