Product description:

An easy-to-use presence/absence test for detecting fecal bacteria in water samples. 

This ready-to-use test is ideal for routine monitoring of drinking water systems in remote locations.

The presence of fecal bacteria in water is a clear indication of contamination from human or animal excrement, which carries a high risk of pathogenic microorganisms causing severe waterborne diseases (e.g. Cholera). Monitoring fecal bacteria is crucial to ensure safe drinking water and safeguard public health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) drinking water guidelines, safe water must not contain any fecal indicator bacteria. (Reference: WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, Fourth Edition, 2011, page 36)”
