by step guide to using the ECA Check membrane filter kit from Micrology Laboratories.
Now anyone can get accurate and reliable information on bacteria levels in their water.
The Micrology Laboratories ECA Check membrane filter kit distinguishes between the some of the most important bacteria which indicate water quality. These are E coli, coliforms, Aeromonas spp. For interest, ECA Check kits that test for Salmonella spp. as well as the other groups can be ordered.
Aeromonas spp are common in water supplies and are generally considered pathogenic because they can cause diseases. Their presence and numbers is generally considered to be a good indicator of water quality. Up to now water quality regulations do not usually specify maximum allowable numbers of Aeromonas spp. But the new Micrology kits mean that it is now possible to monitor these important bacteria in water supplies.
Your Membrane filter kit will contain full instructions but here is a quick step by step guide to show how the kits work.
ECA Check Take a look at how the different types of bacteria appear at ECA Check colour guide. Remember if you are using the Coliscan Easygel kits or the coliforms or Total Count kits the colours will be different. Refer to the instructions for those kits.
