Culture - Water

Culture for water with presumptive coliform count is a pivotal test designed to analyse water samples for the presence of coliform bacteria thoroughly. Coliforms, a bacterial group commonly found in the environment and warm-blooded animals' feces, are assessed through this testing procedure. While not all coliform bacteria pose a direct threat, their presence in water can hint at the possible existence of pathogenic bacteria. Hence, coliform testing serves as an indicator of water's sanitary quality.

  • Profile Name: Culture - Water
  • Sample Type: water
  • Preparations Required: Sample should be collected in a sterile container and submitted to the laboratory as soon as possible.
  • Report Time: 4 days

This test begins with collecting a water sample, which is then introduced into a specialised culture medium supporting the growth of coliform bacteria. Following an incubation period, the sample is meticulously examined to identify and quantify coliform colonies. The presumptive coliform count provides an initial estimation of coliform concentration in the water. Further confirmatory testing can be pursued if necessary, ensuring comprehensive assessment and validation.

Assuring the safety of drinking water, recreational usage, and other purposes relies on this meticulous examination, making such tests indispensable for ensuring water quality.

Frequently Asked Questions

This laboratory test is a crucial analysis of a water sample to identify and estimate the quantity of coliform bacteria, serving as key indicators of water quality and safety.

Testing for coliform bacteria holds immense importance as their presence may signal water contamination from fecal matter, possibly carrying harmful pathogens. This assessment is pivotal in determining water safety for consumption or the necessity for treatment.

Collecting a water sample requires a sterile container to prevent contamination. Ensuring aseptic handling without touching the container or sample interior is critical in maintaining sample integrity.

A positive result signifies the presence of coliform bacteria in the water sample, suggesting potential contamination that might render the water unsafe for consumption without proper treatment.

While not all coliform bacteria are harmful, their presence may hint at the existence of disease-causing bacteria. Specific strains, like E. coli, can pose health risks if consumed.
