Aquavial Plus Applications:
- Testing the effectiveness of water treatment & disinfection
- Screening water from municipal water supply
- Testing well water
- Testing hot tubs & pools (Note: this does not remove chlorine or make the water drinkable)
- Monitoring environmentally friendly water disinfectant systems (ozone, hydrogen peroxide, and UV treatment)
Perfect for testing water supplies that may have been in proximity with fecal matter (human, pet, wild, or livestock) Aquavial Plus can detect bacteria in 15-30 minutes and E. Coli and other coliforms in as little as 24 hours. It’s so easy to use, anyone can do it – no lab technician or microbial cultures required.
The bacteria test kit can detect high levels of bacteria (over 500 CFU/ml), a sign of untreated water. Very high levels (over 2,000 CFU/ml) indicate the presence of biofilm. The E. Coli and coliform bacteria testing kit indicates fecal contamination of water supplies and signals serious health risks.
Using advanced nanotechnology Aquavial Plus doesn’t need microbial cultures like other tests. It uses a proprietary T-Cup unit to concentrate water samples, leading to increased test sensitivity and produces consistent reliable results.
What is Biofilm?
Biofilm is a slimy, sticky film produced by bacteria as a wat to store nutrients and defend against chemical treatment. Biofilm in warm water creates ideal conditions for harmful bacteria like Legionella, Pseudomonas, and Klebsiella – known to cause Pneumonia.
