The Single Incubator Benchtop Kit, designed for microbiological water monitoring via detection of indicator organisms for E. coli, cholera, salmonella and other faecal water borne pathogens, is the most popular water testing system in the developing world. The Benchtop Kit, for use where the power supply is regular and constant, comes with an AC adaptor (including 2-pin standard European plug) and no internal battery.
Each kit is also provided with a complete pack
of consumables for 200 plates.
You will need the following items to
- Pressure cooker or portable steriliser or access to an autoclave e.g. in a hospital
- Methanol (approx 1 ml per test)
- Distilled water
- 1 litre measuring cylinder or beaker
- Clean cloths
The kit will perform the following tests:
Thermotolerant Coliform Count: Thermotolerant (faecal) Coliform counts can be obtained within 14 to 18 hours of sampling giving a reliable indication of sanitary risk.
Turbidity Test: A measure of the amount of suspended matter in a water supply. Suspended material may consume chlorine disinfectants and require treatment before disinfection.
Chlorine & pH Test: Many emergency water supplies are dosed with chlorine disinfectant to ensure their safety as drinking water. These tests allow rapid assessment of chlorine levels and aid the efficient control of dosing thereby ensuring that enough chlorine is present to safeguard the supply.
Other Tests: A conductivity meter is provided as an optional component of the kit. Conductivity provides an indication of contamination e.g. saline intrusion or sewage pollution. Additional equipment can be included on request to test for chemicals that may be of local importance.
