Same Shift E.coli Results for Food, Water and Environmental Samples
MicroSnap E.coli is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of E.coli bacteria in less than 8 hours. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of E.coli react with specialised substrates. The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSSURE Touch luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap E.coli is able to provide results on the same day.
The test consists of an enrichment device containing a specific growth medium and a detection device containing a bioluminogenic substrate in which the detection reaction is measured using any of the Hygiena luminometers.
Step 1 which is an enrichment step involves incubating the sample in a growth media in order to increase the number of bacteria. As the number of bacteria increase, more of the diagnostic enzymes are created (beta-galactosidase and beta-glucuronidase), which are required for the bioluminogenic reaction. The incubation time of the sample is determined by the level of sensitivity required. After incubation, a small amount of sample is transferred to the detection device.
In Step 2, the detection device is activated and incubated for 10 minutes. At this time, a specific substrate reacts with diagnostic enzymes to product light. Light is measured in a luminometer in seconds. Light output is directly proportional to intial starting inoculum.
Testing a large volume liquid sample for E.coli?
MicroSnap E.coli Enrichment broth is available in a 2mL vial for use with filtered samples, delivering same day results. Earlier results mean held product can be released sooner, drastically cutting inventory and warehouse costs for beverage processors.
