Escherichia_coli

Escherichia coli  also known as E. coli  is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms). Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in their hosts, and are occasionally responsible for product recalls due to food contamination. The harmless strains are part of the normal microbiota of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing vitamin K2, and preventing colonization of the intestine with pathogenic bacteria, having a symbiotic relationship. E. coli is expelled into the environment within fecal matter. The bacterium grows massively in fresh fecal matter under aerobic conditions for 3 days, but its numbers decline slowly afterwards

Tecta

TECTA™ is an automated microbiological platform that uses patented Polymer Partition technology to rapidly and reliably detect

  • E. coli
  • Total Coliforms
  • Faecal Coliforms
  • Enterococci

Available for testing 4 or 16 samples, this platform is simple, sensitive and flexible, allowing for testing of samples at any time of the day. TECTA™ will automatically transmit data allowing for immediate notification on electronic devices, such as mobile phones or laptops, as soon as a contamination event is detected.

Colikat

Tell me more about:

Colikat_rapid

COLIKAT RAPID is a fast test to simultaneously detect both total coliforms and Escherichia coli in water samples providing the test’s results within 18 hours. COLIKAT RAPID is suited for the entire water matrix.

The water samples to be tested are incubated overnight so that they are ready to read early the next day. Therefore COLIKAT RAPID delivers significant workflow benefits and speed in the event of a contamination issue. The test’s high sensitivity enables early coliform detection in water distribution systems, assisting to help to reduce biofilm buildup and sporadic downstream contamination events. As compared to the alternative conventional method using Chromogenic Coliform Agar (CCA; ISO 9308-1) for detection, COLIKAT RAPID significantly reduces false alarms created by inaccurate false positive results which give rise to uncertainty and unnecessary expense.

  • Simultaneous detection and quantification of Escherichia coli and total coliforms for the entire water matrix.
  • Sample evaluation after 18 hours.
  • Optimized workflow in your laboratory: The sample evaluation takes place after 18 hours before the reception of next days’ samples.
  • Enumeration of Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria in water samples acc. to EN ISO 9308-2.

MICROPLATE MUG/EC

Tell me more about:

Microplate_MUG/EC

Microplate MUG/EC allows the practical identification and enumeration of Escherichia coli in water, according to ISO standard NF EN ISO 9308-3.
The use of microtiter plates, with wells containing a specifically developed medium, was conceived for use in the analysis of several types of water, notably swimming and beach water in salt and fresh water, surface (still) water and post-treatment water. The method is applicable to all water samples, including those rich in suspended matter. For the enumeration of Escherichia coli, the microtiter technique with MUG has been recognized as a more specific, precise, and rapid compared to previously used method. By virtue of its role as an indicator microorganism of fecal contamination, this bacteria is of special interest due to its exclusively intestinal origin, which confers on it a more particular status as a priority bioindicator in water quality controls.
