Rapid and specific detection of E. coli and coliform bacteria

Specific detection of Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria

Product Number: 01230008

Lab analysis of E.coli and coliform bacteria

Analysis of the sample for the presence of coliform bacteria and especially Escherichia coli.

Results will be provided within 3 working days after sample receipt, in case of readily enriched samples or grown colonies by the next working day.

Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Qualitative

Which method is applied?
The reliable VIT® gene probe technology.

Which requirements are important?
Product and raw material samples:                                                            

  • beer, wine, juices & soft drinks, minimum 100 ml
  • juice concentrates, minimum 25 ml
  • powder, minimum 10 g
  • water samples (e.g. soda, rinsing water etc.), minimum 150 ml

Pre-enriched samples:

  • Pre-enriched bouillons (10 ml) or agar plates with colonies: this allows a shorter time-to-result.

 

For an analysis of your samples directly on site we recommend our test kit VIT® E.coli/Coliforms.
