This is Step 2 of the MicroSnap process. The Micro-Snap Detection Swab for Coliforms is a rapid test for enumeration of Coliforms.
MicroSnap™ is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of Coliform and E.coli bacteria. The new MicroSnap™ platform replaces traditional microbiology testing methods with a rapid, scientific test that provides results in less than eight hours. Same-shift results allow food and beverage processors to screen materials faster, monitor the plant environment in real time and release finished products faster. The MicroSnap™ consists of an Enrichment Device containing a growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate. When MicroSnap™ detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with the EnSure™ luminometer.
