EC Blue 100P    Product

ECBlue - a rapid method for testing the water quality

ECBlue is a simple, quick and reliable test method for the qualitative and quantitative
determination of coliforms and E.coli in water.

ECBlue is simple to handle - our »easy to use«-principle:
Add water to be tested dissolve the ECBlue100P medium in 100ml of the test water. Then incubate the mixture at 35 ± 2° C. The medium does not require further preparation work.
This means that the test can be carried out anywhere without much effort.

ECBlue is quick - our »fast result«-principle:
Traditional incubating methods require about three days for the detection of coliforms or E.coli. ECBlue, on the other hand, already provides reliable test results after 24 hours.

ECBlue is reliable and conclusive - our »safe and clear«-principle:
Detection is based on a colour reaction and is thus easy to interpret: if coliform bacteria are present, the water turns blue due to the cleavage of the chromogenic substrate X-Gal. In the event of faecal contamination by E.coli, these bacteria can only be conclusively detected
under UV light (reaction with a fluorescent dye). Suspended matter, cloudy, yellowish or chlorinated water samples do not generally interfere with detection.

ECBlue is simple to keep - our »easy to store«-principle:
ECBlue does not need to be cooled and has a shelf life of up to two years at room temperature if protected from light. This saves costs.

The optional tool ECBlueQuant provides a rapid and simple method of quantifying coliforms and E.coli in the form of an MPN test (Most Probable Number).

Overview of the practical advantages

  • Efficiency: Simultaneous testing of a medium for coliforms and E.coli using a chromogenic enzyme substrate (X-GAL-MUG method).
  • Speed: Test result within 24 hours.
  • Performance: Bacteria stressed by chlorinated water are also detected with ECBlue in most cases.
  • Simple and reliable application: The medium does not need to be sterilised or pre-prepared; readily soluble in water.
  • Conclusive: Unambiguous test results by means of a colour reaction; detection limit of coliforms and E.coli: 1 cfu / 100 ml. Positive samples can be clearly identified by comparison with the ECBlueComparator (bottle with reference fluid).
  • Practical packaging: Blister pack.
  • Long shelf life: Up to two years at room temperature in the absence of light.
  • Long shelf life: Up to two years at room temperature in the absence of light.
  • Cost-saving
