This bacteria test enables user to find out if the sample water contains coliform bacteria.
Coliform bacteria is a commonly used bacterial indicator of sanitary quality of foods and water.
They are defined as rod-shaped Gram-negative non-spore forming bacteria which can ferment
lactose with the production of acid and gas when incubated at 35–37°C. [American Public Health
Association (APHA), Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater (19th ed.),
APHA, Washington, DC (1995).]
The test requires the specimen water to be mixed with the testing agent in the small vial and then
allowed to stand for 48 hours in a warm area to obtain an accurate result. Please note that the
Bacteria Test is a screening test and cannot be used to certify water as safe or unsafe for drinking.
