Does Udetect analyze total coliform bacteria?

General/total coliforms are not a genetically distinct group of micro-organisms and therefore can’t as such be analysed by qPCR (requires a genetic similarity). For culturing they are typified as being lactase positive and a qPCR might therefore be used for the lacZ gen. This is something we could look into or develop a kit for if there is sufficient interest.
