Science

How the Enterolert-DW Test works

The Enterolert-DW Test uses a Defined Substrate Technology (DST) nutrient indicator to detect enterococci. When coupled with the IDEXX Quanti-Tray System, the Enterolert-DW Test provides quantitative confirmed results in 24 hours. The Enterolert-DW Test utilizes ortho-nitrophenyl-β-D-glucoside as a nutrient indicator and incorporates a specifically designed blue background color in its formulation. When the enzyme substrate is metabolized by enterococci, the sample turns from blue to green to indicate detection. Any change from the original color to green is considered a positive result. No ultraviolet light source is required.

Quantification


Step 1

Add reagent to sample. Cap vessel and shake to mix.

Step 2

Add sample reagent to Quanti-Tray (counts from 1–200) or Quanti-Tray/2000 (counts from 1–2,419).

Step 3

Seal using Quanti-Tray Sealer and incubate for 24 hours at 41°C ± 0.5°C.

Step 4

Count positive wells and refer to most probable number (MPN) table.
