Water Quality Test
MicroSnap Coliform is a rapid test for the detection of coliform bacteria in water samples. This test is designed for use in the laboratory or on-site, providing accurate and reliable results in just 24 hours. Coliform bacteria are a group of microorganisms that are commonly found in the environment, including in water sources. These bacteria are often used as indicators of water quality, as their presence can indicate the presence of other harmful organisms.
- Quick and easy to use: MicroSnap Coliform can be performed in just 24 hours, providing fast results for water quality testing.
- Accurate and reliable: The test has been validated by multiple independent studies, providing confidence in the results.
- Cost-effective: MicroSnap Coliform is a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods of coliform detection, such as membrane filtration.
Usage of Q-Swab
MicroSnap Coliform is a valuable tool for monitoring water quality and ensuring that it is safe for consumption. The test is quick and easy to use, accurate and reliable, and cost-effective. It is commonly used in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, water treatment, and agriculture, to ensure that water is safe for consumption and use.
Same Shift Results
Rapid test results are essential to releasing product quickly. The MicroSnap™ family of rapid indicator organism tests enables food safety and quality manager to enumerate samples in 6 hours and to determine presence/absence in 8 hours. Simply collect sample, incubate and read with a Hygiena™ Luminometer.
Reduce Costs and Shorten Release Cycles
While sending samples to the lab for PCR analysis can be necessary for a specific application, simpler more cost-effective solutions can supplement your testing protocols. Integrating MicroSnap™ as a rapid indicator test within your testing protocol will reduce material cost, shipping costs and lab fees. Plus, a rapid test also means shorter production hold times and lower inventory holding costs, all leading to more cost savings.
Flexible and Easy-to-Use Format
MicroSnap’s efficient design makes microorganism testing flexible and easy. It can be used for both surfaces and samples. Both options use a simple 2-step process: enrichment and detection. Plus, the patented Snap-Valve holds a precise amount of specific enrichment broth, ready to be used for either product or surface samples. Within the enrichment device is a built-in pipette, enabling convenient and efficient transfer of enriched samples to the detection device. The enriched sample is read on a Hygiena™ luminometer, which means no tedious colony counting is necessary. Use the RLU to CFU conversion table to determine the outcome. Microorganism testing has never been easier.
Works with Filtered Samples
MicroSnap™ Coliform & E. coli Enrichment Broth is available in a 2mL vial for use with large-volume filtered samples and delivers same-day results. Earlier results mean products can be released sooner; thus cutting inventory and warehouse costs for beverage processors. This method is AOAC approved and validated against the EPA method.
Complete Hygiena Monitoring Program
MicroSnap™ is an essential component within a complete environmental monitoring program. Combine MicroSnap™ with the EnSURE™ Touch and SureTrend™ Cloud to capture and trend your test results over time. Use the SureTrend™ Cloud dashboard to see how your ATP testing program impacts your microorganism testing and how the two work together to reduce your risk of a contamination event.
MicroSnap™ Enhanced Nutrient Broth
MicroSnap™ Enhanced Nutrient Broth is a non-selective protein solution. The 9mL nutrient broth enables low-level enumeration when used with MicroSnap™ Total, MicroSnap™ Coliform and MicroSnap™ E. coli. For milk samples, use with MicroSnap Coliform to detect 1 CFU/mL (AOAC-RI Performance Tested Method (Certificate #071302).
