RAPID'E.coli 2 Agar Water Testing Protocol
Validated for Water Testing

The RAPID'E.coli 2 protocol is certified by NF VALIDATION as an alternative method for the detection and enumeration of E. coli and coliforms in water according to the NF EN ISO 9308-1:2000 standard Protocol for the Validation of a commercial method versus a reference method in the water microbiology field (rev 1).

 



RAPID'E.coli 2 Agar for Water Testing is composed of the RAPID’E.coli 2 Chromogenic Medium and a selective supplement. The complete medium relies on the simultaneous detection of two enzymatic activities: coliforms (GAL+/GLUC-) form green colonies, whereas E. coli (GAL+/GLUC+) forms blue to violet colonies due to the superposition of both activities.

The main interfering flora in water is inhibited by the selective mixture in the supplement, which is particularly convenient for testing water for human consumption and untreated water (such as water from wells, lakes, and rivers), for which the standard media are not always the most efficient.
