We offer easy-to-use, single-use drinking water test kits that meet WHO guidelines. You do not need an incubator or other materials or equipment to run this test. Everything is included in the pre-sterilized kit, allowing detection of e coli using color change.
The water test uses e coli (an indicator for water at risk for causing diarrheal disease) as the 'index' indicator. If e coli is present, the water is NOT safe for drinking as this indicates that fecal matter may be present in the water.
The test is designed as easy to use, easy to read, specifically tailored for community health workers and other community members interested in testing water quality. What's more, the test and its results link directly to mwater's cloud-based water quality app to store data on the water source on a publicly accessed database.
Train anyone in less than a day - no prior water quality experience required.
Instructions for use:
Simply fill the bag, add one drop to test plate, and wait 24 hours to read the results.
