AQUASURE Australia has announced the introduction of its field testing system for total coliform and E coli. The system has been successfully trialed and used in the USA, Canada and other countries.
The AquaPro 3000 is a standalone incubation system that adopts the single test, precision, portable incubator technology (STEPPI).
The use of Aqualert test kits in conjunction with the AquaPro will provide users with a flexible monitoring alternative to laboratory-based testing.
The system's capacity to provide a presence/absence result within 24 hours to a sensitivity of 1 colony forming unit per 100mL of sample, makes it a user friendly means for testing to statutory compliance levels (WHO, DHS, etc).
It has proven to be a cost effective system for a range of monitoring and surveillance programs from process monitoring of treatment plants to public health surveys in remote localities.
The microprocessor controlled system has been designed to keep microbiological testing of water simple and with minimal training in a non-laboratory based situation.
