Escherichia coli is the member of faecal coliform group, presence of which in water indicates faecal contamination. These bacteria possess the enzyme b-glucuronidase and are capable of cleaving the fluorogenic substrate 4-Methylumbelliferyl beta- D-Glucuronide (MUG) with the release of the corresponding fluorogen, 4-Methylumbelliferone. Therefore, incorporation of MUG and subsequent fluoroscense is confirmatory for presence of E. coli with no further confirmation required. MUG Nutrient Agar is recommended for detection of E. coli in water and food samples by a fluorogenic method. Presumptive E. coli in the samples can be directly inoculated into the medium.
