Fully automated E. coli and Enterococci monitoring

May 17 2024

Rather than enduring the tedious procedure associated with the microbiological procedure in which bacteria colonies are left to grow and are then counted, the ColiMinder technology, which is sold and marketed in the UK by QCL (QuadraChem Laboratories Ltd), operates by taking a direct measurement of the sampled target organisms’ specific metabolic activity. ColiMinder provides fully automated, real-time microbiological measurements thereby offering users a continuous overview of water quality, therefore enabling quick and decisive reactions to contamination events. The live measurement data is highlighted on a dedicated website and users receive automatic notifications via SMS and email.

This device is capable of taking measurements every 15 minutes over 10 days before reagents need a refill; this highly user-friendly instrument is the most sensitive of its kind available on the market for measuring the microbial quality of fresh and saline water for E. coli, Enterococci and Total Activity. The ColiMinder performs reliable and precise continuous monitoring of microbiological contamination with any type of microbes present, along with as well as algae, biofilms, mould, or yeast.

A portable emergency response version (EMU) is also available; this was developed for use in a car or on a boat. The EMU model has the same capability as the standard version, however it works using less energy consumption and has the option of solar powered operation.
