The HyServe EC Blue Water Test allows a medium to be tested simultaneously for coliform and E.coli bacteria using the chromogenic enzyme substrate method (X-GAL-MUG method). The test for water quality testing is simple, fast, and safe. It indicates in a blue-green dye whether coliform bacteria are present in the sample.
While classical cultivation methods need about 3 days for the detection of coliform or E.coli bacteria, the EC Blue provides a reliable test result after only 24 hours. Detection by color reaction is reliable and easy to interpret. Suspended solids, turbid or yellowish, and chlorinated water samples usually do not interfere with detection.
