The DelAgua Single Incubator Water Testing Kit, designed for microbiological water monitoring via detection of indicator organisms (faecal coliforms), is the most popular portable water testing system in the developing world. Built with an internal battery, it is capable of up to 5 incubation cycles between recharges making it completely independent for off-site surveying. The kit was designed to help provide information about the safety of water supplies in difficult situations where laboratory facilities do not exist.
Each kit is provided with a complete pack of consumables for 200 plates.
You will need the following items to start testing:
- Pressure cooker or portable steriliser or access to an autoclave
- Methanol (approx 1 ml per test)
- Distilled water
- 1L measuring cylinder/beaker
- Clean cloths
The kit will perform the following tests:
Thermotolerant (faecal) Coliform Count: Counts can be obtained within 14 to 18 hours of sampling, giving an indication of sanitary risk without need for transport or laboratory facilities.
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 Tests: Many emergency water supplies are dosed with chlorine disinfectant to ensure their safety for drinking. 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. Additional equipment can be included on request.
