Colilert-18 is a liquid culture method that simultaneously detects both total coliforms and Escherichia coli in water, giving confirmed results in 18 hours.
Principle: The Colilert-18 test uses proprietary Defined Substrate Technology (DST) nutrient indicators ONPG and MUG to detect coliforms and E. coli. Coliforms use their β-galactosidase
The Coliforms Water Test Kit allows a rapid detection of culturable coliforms bacteria (including E. coli) from 1CFU/ 10 mL in all water samples in 24 hours.
The test works with 2 elements:
The Mini-Lab: a pocket laboratory (reusable and compatible with other test kits)
1 Coliforms Water Test Kit which contains the reagents
