MicroSnap Coliform is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of Coliform
bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic reaction that generates light
when enzymes that are characteristic of Coliform bacteria react with specialized substrates. The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE luminometer. Results are available in 8 hours or less, depending upon required level of detection. Single figure organisms can be detected in 8 hours, delivering results in the same working day or shift.



» 6 hour quantitative results (CFU counts)
» 8 hour presence/absence results
» Broad CFU detection range (10 – 10,000 CFU) means fewer dilutions and
less sample prep saving time and money
» Suitable for product or environmental samples
»Pass/Fail result at required detection levels are easy to understand
» Uses common microbiology sample preparation for product samples
» Same day results allow for timely corrective action
» In-house testing reduces costs from outside lab fees
» AOAC Research Institute Performance Tested Method (#071302)
» 12 month shelf life at refrigerated temperatures (2-8°C)

Sensitivity & Secificity 

  • Detects down to <10 CFU in 8 hours
  •  Detects Coliform bacteria including Escherichia, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, and
