Ceeram Launches Two New Microbial Source Tracking Kits


ImageCeeram has recently introduced two new ceeramTools™ TEST PACKS for determining the origin of a fecal contamination - Bacteriophages and bacteroides - in water samples .

The ceeramTools™ RT-PCR Test kit (provides 24 tests per kit) comes complete with:

  • Mastermix
  • Primers and Probes
  • IPC (bacteroides)
  • Neg and Pos Controls

Specificity, sensitivity and robustness characterise the ceeramTools™ Microbial Source Tracking Test Kits. Bacteriophages KMST1 kit allows for the determination of a human and/or an animal contamination origin. Bacteroides KMST2 kit allows for the determination of a human, porcine and/or ruminant fecal contamination origin.

In Europe, the revised Bathing Water European Directive (2006/7/EC) has recently introduced more stringent microbial concentration limits, as well as the need to establish bathing water profiles where animal or human fecal contamination origin must be determined.

You can discover more about these high quality molecular biology tools during the next IAFP congresses, both in Marseille, France and Charlotte, NC, USA, where Ceeram will be present.
