Rapid Test Kits for Quantitive Germ Count in Drinking Water

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.

Rapid Test Kits

What is the process?

Liquid Sampling

Fill the case with the fluid and insert the sampler into the case for 30 seconds.

Surface Sampling

Rub the surface with the swab sampler and insert into the case shaking 30 times.

Incubation

Incubate the test kits with the membrane-side facing down.

Counting

Count the colonies or make a quick estimate using the Comparison Chart.

Liquid Sampling

  1. Fill the case with the fluid to be tested up to the top line.
  2. Insert the sampler into the case.
  3. Lay the sampler membrane face down for 30 seconds.
  4. Empty the case of fluid.

Surface Sampling

  1. Rub the surface of interest to be tested with the Swab.
  2. Insert the sampler into the case.
  3. Shake both pieces 30 times. By shaking the surface of the swab in the buffer solution, the buffer solution becomes the liquid sample.
  4. Empty the liquid from the case.
  5. Use the Sampler to determine and count any bacteria, yeast or mold that may be present.

Incubation

Incubate with the membrane facing down.

Counting

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