E coli test Water Test

This innovative dipstick test uses novel patented technology to determine the presence of e.coli in water. 

  • Low-cost and easy to use kit for environmental testing
  • The test can detect up to 200 CFU/mL e coli
  • Quick color-based results in 20-60 minutes

 

The problem

E. coli is a type of fecal coliform bacteria commonly found in the intestines of animals and humans.  The abbreviation is short for Escherichia coli.  The presence of Ecoli in water indicates sewage or other contamination in the water which can in turn cause diarrhea in adults and children. Certain strains of e coli cause severe illness which is life threatening because of the resulting severe dehydration. Detection of e coli in drinking water or bathing water could prevent deaths.

The solution

The technology behind paper based tests has improved dramatically in recent years, leading to the ability to test for e coli.  The rapid paper-based test changes color when the presence of e coli is detected in water and can detect up to 200 CFU/mL.  The intensity of the color change (red) decreases with the decrease in the concentration of Ecoli.  The low-cost, lightweight diagnostic can yield results in 20-60 minutes and is a ready-to-use means of testing environmental water supplies for the presence of e coli.
