Rapid 
  • Less than 1 minute of hands-on time.
  • Detects coliforms and E. coli simultaneously in 24 hours or less.
  • No confirmations needed.
  • No glassware cleaning or colony counting.

Accurate 

  • Definitive results at 24 hours; can be read up to 48 hours.
  • Identifies E. coli specifically, eliminating unneeded public notification due to non-target organisms.
  • Suppresses up to 2 million heterotrophs per 100 mL.
  • Eliminates the subjective interpretation found in traditional methods.
  • Detects a single viable coliform or E. coli per sample.

Economical 
  • Minimizes evening and weekend work.
  • Up to 12-month shelf life at room temperature.

Flexible
  • The Colisure Test can be used for presence/absence (P/A) or quantification testing.

Science

How the Colisure Test works

The Colisure Test uses proprietary Defined Substrate Technology (DST) nutrient indicators CPRG and MUG to detect total coliforms and E. coli. Coliforms use the β-galactosidase enzyme to metabolize CPRG and change it from yellow to magenta. E. coli use β-glucuronidase to metabolize MUG and create fluorescence.

Presence/Absence


Step 1

Add reagent to sample and incubate at 35 ± 0.5°C for 24 hours.

Step 2

Read results:

  • Yellow = negative
  • Magenta = total coliforms
  • Magenta/fluorescent = E. coli

Quantification


Step 1

Add reagent to sample.

Step 2

Pour into Quanti-Tray (counts from 1–200) or Quanti-Tray/2000 (counts from 1–2,419).

Step 3

Seal in Quanti-Tray Sealer and place in incubator at 35 ± 0.5°C for 24 hours.

Step 4: Quanti-Tray

Quanti-Tray—Read results:

  • Magenta wells = total coliforms
  • Magenta/fluorescent wells = E. coli
  • Count positive wells and refer to MPN table

Step 4: Quanti-Tray/2000

Quanti-Tray/2000—Read results:

  • Magenta wells = total coliforms
  • Magenta/fluorescent wells = E. coli
  • Count positive wells and refer to MPN table
