Product Code TM 1908
Coliform Broth w/SLS is a selective medium recommended for the simultaneous detection of Escherichia coli and total coliforms in water and food samples. The enzyme ?-glucuronidase produced by E.coli cleaves X-glucuronide thus imparting blue colour to the medium. Formation of cherry red colour after addition of few drops (0.5ml) of Kovac’s reagent to the medium indicates the presence of E.coli.
for detection of E.coli and other Enterobacteriaceae in water samples
