AUTOMATED MONITORING OF MICROBIOLOGICAL WATER QUALITY
ColiMinder® Industrial is a fully automated measurement system which is able to measure microbiological contamination of liquid Samples within 15 minutes.
ColiMinder® Industrial is measuring the microbiological contamination trough the specific enzymatic activity of target organisms. The measurement process is a batch process. Time to result is 15 min, followed by 15 min of cleaning cycle.
Data transfer and visualization:
Measurements data can be directly transmitted to the server through internet connection were data visualization is available (see example below) and automatic acknowledgements can be set.
Reagents are available for the following target organisms:
- Fecal Contamination – E. coli (Beta-Glucuronidase Activity)
- Coliform Bacteria (Beta-Galactosidase Activity)
- Total Bacteria (ALP – Alkaline Phosphatase Activity)
Reagents are optimized for the use in either sweet or salt waters.
Measurement Units, Calibration of the Instrument:
ColiMinder® Industrial devices deliver quantitative results calibrated to respective enzymatic units according to the scientific definition of the given enzymatic activity. Measuring fecal contamination, the devices are calibrated to Modified Fishman Units per 100ml (MFU/100ml) for Beta-D-Glucuronidase activity (GUS) or to DEA Units (U/100ml) for Alkaline Phosphatase activity (ALP).
Addon modules: An additional module (free programmable) to control sample delivery to the device is available. The module is able to control pumps and valves to deliver sample to the measurement device. A reverse osmosis water filter system (replacement for distilled water tank).
