E-Coli Water Testing Kit | Escherichia coli (also known as E.coli) is a Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms.

Most E.coli strains are harmless but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in their hosts, and are occasionally responsible for product recalls due to food contamination. Pathogenic E.coli can cause severe diarrhea and sepsis. Pathogenic E.coli secretes adhesions and escherichia coli toxins which do harm to human health.

E. coli Test Instructions

Do not open the test vial until you are ready to test your water. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after using this test kit.

  1. Remove the test vial cap and fill with 30ml of water
  2. Tightly screw the cap on and shake well for 30 seconds or until the powder has dissolved
  3. Sit the vial on a flat surface for 24 hours at temperatures between 20 to 35 degrees Celsius.

Incubation Period

Test results will take a minimum of 24 hours (+ - 2 hours) to complete however incubation temperatures and/or lower bacteria numbers may cause results to take up to 72 hours.

Store the vial in an upright position (out of direct sunlight) until test result colours are evident. Shaking the vial for 5-10 seconds every 8 to 12 hours can enhance colour development but is is not required.

Match Results

After the incubation time has passed your test results will be evident without having to open the test vial. Simply match with the colour chart provided.

YELLOW = ABSENCE: This means a negative result for coliform bacteria if the sample inside the vial is clear or yellow. To confirm continue your results continue the incubation period to 72 hours to confirm the absence of the bacteria.

TEAL = PRESENCE: This means that your test is displaying a positive result for coliform bacteria. The colour and intensity may vary. If any shade in the colour spectrum of teal, blue or green exists at any time during the test period (between 24-72 hours), the test is complete.
