This is a quick test for the presence or absence of Coliform and E. Coli Bacteria. Coliform is an indicator bacteria that public water supplies are required to monitor. The presence of Coliform could indicate the presence of other infection disease causing organisms. If Coliform is present, then we look for E. Coli which is a known pathogen.
This quick series test is designed to provide test results within 2-3 business days from the receipt of the water sample at the lab.
We will ship you a test kit that contains all of the materials needed to collect the water for us. We provide detailed instructions on how to collect your sample and where to return it. What is NOT included in the test kit is the return shipping of the water sample. This kit requires overnight shipment of the water sample back to the lab for analysis. We will be happy to extend our UPS rates
to you - just call us before you are ready to collect your sample and we can email a return label at that time. Call us at 1-800-458-3330 and ask for return shipping rates.
If you are performing testing to meet a regulatory requirement or if your results may be used for litigation purposes, please contact us for more information about testing packages designed for those purposes.
