BactTest E. Coli + Total Coliform Detection Kit

The BactTest (TM) e. coli and total detection detection kit is a presumptive screen intended for the rapid detection of e.coli or total coliform bacteria from either a swab sample (for surface detection) or 1mL water sample (for liquid detection) using the FluoroQuik BactTest dual-channel handheld fluorometer. The assay utilizes a fluorogenic substrate which, when hydrolyzed by a specific enzyme (during peptide hydrolysis), produces a fluorescence which is conveniently read by the fluorometer.
