Government Agencies

Government AgenciesThe bacterial contamination of lakes and streams has become increasingly problematic. This issue is now at the forefront of government’s environmental priorities and has recently received a great deal of attention as incidences of water contamination and media coverage of such events has heightened public concern.

Our bacterial water testing kits offer a solution to government agencies requiring rapid detection of bacteria in drinking, recreational and other water sources. Our kits are ideal for sampling and testing in remote areas where lab facilities are not available. They are also used by agencies with sophisticated lab facilities and are the preferred choice over the older traditional methods.

Please see ‘Coliplate’ and ‘Watercheck’ link for more info. on the benefits of our test kits.
