Enterococci are commonly found in the faeces of humans and other warm-blooded animals. Although some strains are ubiquitous and not related to faecal pollution, the presence of Enterococci in water is an indication of faecal pollution and the possible presence of enteric pathogens. The Enterococci test is recommended as a measure of ambient fresh and marine recreational water quality. Epidemiological studies have led to the development of criteria which can be used to promulgate recreational water standards based on established relationships between health effects and water quality. The significance of finding Enterococci in recreational fresh or marine water samples is the direct relationship between the density of Enterococci and the risk of gastrointestinal illness associated with swimming in water. The Rapid Enterococci Agar allows for rapid identification and differentiation of Enterococci from water samples.
for rapid and easy identi?cation and di?erentiation of Enterococci from water
