Instruments for rapid detection of coliform bacteria in water

Automated instrument for monitoring drinking water hygienic quality

Colifast ALARM

Colifast ALARM™ is an online instrument for detection of indicator bacteria in drinking water by using the patented Colifast technology. 100 mL water samples are automatically collected at programmed intervals and analysed for total coliforms, thermotolerant coliforms or E. coli. The system can detect down to 1 cfu/100 mL, and results are obtained within 6-14/15 hours.

Colifast CALM

Fully automated online system for detection of coliform bacteria in water. Also available with prefilled vials. Detection time from 8 to 12 hours. The Colifast At-Line Monitor – CALM is a fully automated early warning system for monitoring of coliforms and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in water. The technology is timesaving, cost reducing, and environmentally friendly. The applications of the CALM span from raw water, in-process water, and waste water, to environmental monitoring. No laboratory facilities and minimal skills in microbiology are required to perform the analysis. The CALM is easily operated by the system computer or via LAN interface. The patented Colifast growth media are supplied in multi well Trays™ and the systems flexibility makes it easy to adapt to different applications. The CALM can perform parallel analysis of different target organisms. Depending on method and test frequency, the CALM needs monthly or weekly refilling of reagents.

Colifast Field Kit

Colifast Field Kit is a portable tool for field detection of coliform bacteria in water. The main method of the kit is a rapid method that provides an answer as early as 15 minutes, 2 hours at the latest. In addition, the kit includes methods for a quantitative MPN (Most Probable Number) method and presence/absence results.


FAST™ Fish Test

The test detects the level of spoilage bacteria in fresh marine fish. The level of bacteria in fresh fish correspond with the remaining shelf life of the fish. The test is easy to use.
