Coliplate™ kit is a convenient test for quantitative measure of total coliforms and E. Coli bacteria. The test is designed to meet regulatory guidelines for surface water, recreational water, processing water and wastewater. The Coliplate™ test quantifies density of target bacteria, coliforms and E. Coli, ranging from 5 to 5,000 colony forming-units (cfu) per 100 mL sample, without dilutions. Coliform positive test results in a distinctive blue colour, which enables analysis of brownish, turbid or rust-filled water.

The Coliplate™ assay is based on: (i) the unique ability of coliform bacteria to utilize specialized nutrients and reagents to form a distinctive blue colour, and (ii) the unique ability of E. Coli to form a fluorescent substance under the assay conditions. Quantification of coliforms and E. Coli is based on the principle of the Most Probable Number (MPN) of colony forming-units per 100 mL.
