Coliforms and E.coli


Eurofins offers presence/absence testing of total coliforms and E.coli, which can indicate foecal contamination following sewage ingress in a building or in a water source. 

For an additional fee, samples can be quantitated using a Most Probable Number or MPN method. This testing is sensitive down to 1MPN/100ml and is backed by standard Method 9221 as a compliance monitoring method in drinking water.

The testing takes only 24hrs for a result, and can be performed from various samples types such as sterile surface swabs, bulk samples (e.g. dirt)  and water samples.
