Target Tube Enterococcus


Product description

Enterococcus is a large genus of bacteria comprising many different species. Among them, two species, Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium, are innocuously present in the intestines of humans and animals. Thus, the presence of Enterococcus in (drinking) water can serve as a robust indicator of fecal contamination. While most Enterococcus species are harmless, some strains of this bacterium can cause various diseases. The Enterococcus target tube enables the detection and quantification of Enterococcus presence.

Monitoring fecal contamination, such as through Enterococcus, in drinking water is essential. This is not only to monitor the quality of the (drinking) water but also to detect potential waterborne diseases. Waterborne diseases caused by Enterococcus can potentially pose a threat to human health, public safety, and ecosystem well-being.
