IDEXX on-site water testing

How to test on-site

The kit is easy to use...I would highly recommend it to other hospitals.

Ben Rainey, Water Safety Manager, St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Any staff member can learn to use IDEXX tests in minutes.

There is no special training or certification, just easy-to-follow instructions.

Step 1: Collect the sample

Use the Water Management Society's recommended method for sample collection.

Step 2: Prepare the sample and incubate

Snap open the reagent sachet and combine with 100 ml water sample. Cap and shake the vessel to mix. Pour the sample into Quanti-Tray and seal using the Quanti-Tray Sealer PLUS. Incubate the Quanti-Tray for the specified time at the designated temperature.

Step 3: Read results

Count the coloured or fluorescing wells to determine results. Cells that appear positive before the full incubation period are considered confirmed positives.

Total hands-on time: Under 3 minutes.

All materials fit on a tabletop.
