MicroSnap Coliform


A new light on microbial detection.

MicroSnap™ Coliform is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of Coliform bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of Coliform bacteria react with specialized substrates to produce light. The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE™ luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap Coliform is able to give results in the same day.

The MicroSnap test platform consists of an Enrichment Device containing a specific growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate.
