Test kits

The test kit enables a rapid and simple quantitative result regarding the total Germ count in the tested drinking water - whether in motorhomes, yachts or sanitary facilities. The technology of the rapid test, consisting of a membrane filter and culture medium, achieves accurate results and enables non-specialists to check the water if it contains potentially hazardous germs.

The germ-rapid test cannot replace a qualitative analysis of drinking water according to the Drinking Water Ordinance.

1A - SAMPLE LIQUIDS OR SURFACES

  1. Fill the outer sheath with the fluid to be tested to the top line.
  2. Insert the Sampler into the outer sheath.
  3. Lay the Sampler membrane face down for 30 seconds.
  4. Discard the sample.

1B - SAMPLE LIQUIDS OR SURFACES

  1. Wipe the surface of interest to be tested with the Swab.
  2. Re-insert the Swab into the sheath ontaining sterile buffer solution.
  3. Shake both pieces together 30 times. By shaking the swab surface into the buffer solution, the buffer solution now becomes your liquid sample.
  4. Discard the Swab.
  5. Once your sample is available, use the Sampler as a second part of the continuous test to determine and count bacteria, yeast, or mold that may be present.

2 - INCUBATE

Incubate with the membrane-side down.

3 - COUNT

Count the colonies or make a quick estimate using the Comparison Chart provided in the package and this brochure.
