| Coliform

MicroSnap™ Coliform is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of Coliform bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of Coliform bacteria react with specialized substrates to produce light. The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE™ luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap Coliform is able to give results in the same day.

A new light on microbial detection.

MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable same-day test results. The MicroSnap test platform consists of an Enrichment Device containing a specific growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate. When MicroSnap detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with Hygiena’s EnSURE luminometer. Results are stored and tracked with Hygiena’s complimentary SureTrend software for further data analysis and trending.

Microbial Detection

No more counting colonies.

CFU

Colony Forming Units

Traditional plating methods utilize colony counting techniques to determine CFU levels. MicroSnap technology derives equivalent CFU values using light detection.

Ensure Meter

RLU

Relative Light Units

EnSURE displays measurements in relative light units (RLU’s). The RLU number is correlated to colony forming units (CFU’s).
