Escherichia coli

Target Tube E.coli


Product description

With this target tube, the bacterium Escherichia coli is measured. This bacterium is better known as E. coli. E. coli is found in many different places, including the environment, food, and in the intestines of humans and animals. Although most E. coli strains are harmless, pathogenic E. coli strains can cause serious illnesses and food poisoning. The presence of E. coli in (drinking) water is considered an important indicator of fecal contamination and the possible presence of waterborne diseases.

Monitoring fecal contamination, for example, through E. coli, in drinking water is necessary. Not only to monitor the quality of (drinking) water but also to detect potential waterborne diseases. Waterborne diseases caused by E. coli can potentially pose a threat to human health, public safety, and ecosystem well-being.
