Microbial Detection

Water municipalities need to verify their production, disinfection, and distribution systems are delivering microbiologically safe, potable drinking water. Food producers need to be sure the water they add, use to wash, and process their products is safe.

Charm provides rapid indicator tests for bacteria and viruses associated with fecal contamination including coliform, Escherichia coli, Enterobacteriaceae, and coliphages. Both Charm products detect a single coliform and/or E. coli bacteria in a 100-mL water sample in 48 hours or less.
