The MicroSnap™ Coliform swabs by Hygiene are a rapid test for detection of Coliform bacteria, no other lab equipment required except for an incubator capable of 37°C and a Luminometer.

This Hygiena Coliform test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of Coliform bacteria react with specialised substrates to produce light.

The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE & EnSURE Touch to give a result.

This product is the second step of a 2 step process which is a detection step.

Hygiena MicroSnap Coliform is able to give results in the same day, depending on the level of detection required.

Hygiene MicroSnap™ Coliform swabs detect:

  • E. coli (E. coli detection kit required)
  • Klebsiella
  • Citrobacter
  • Enterobacter
