Rapid Indicator Organism Tests


Rapid E.coli, Coliform, Enterobacteriaceae and Total Aerobic Count

 ensure and microsnap

MicroSnap is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of specific bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of specific bacteria react with specialised subtrates to product light. The light generating signal is then quantified in a sensitivie, handheld luminometer. Results are available in 1 to 8 hours, depending upon required level of detection. Single figure organisms can be detected in 7 hours, enabling MicoSnap to give results in the same working day or shift. 

  • 6 hour quantitative results (CFU counts)
  • 8 hour presence / absence results
  • Broad CFU detection range (10-10000CFU) means fewer dilutions and less sample preparation saving time and money
  • Suitable for product or environmental samples
  • Pass / Fail result at required detection levels are easy to understand
  • Uses common microbiology sample preparation for product samples
  • Same day results allow for timely corrective action
  • In-house testing reduces costs from outside lab fees
  • AOAC Research Institute Performance Tested Method for Total, Coliform and E coli Counts
  • 12 month shelf life at refrigerated temperatures (2-8°C)


 Applications include: -

  • Surface swabs
  • Raw material and finished product testing
  • Solids, liquids and filterable products
  • Food and beverage
