The Target Tube Enterococcus measures faecal contamination in a water sample. The qPCR analysis is fast and accurately quantifies the presence of the most important fecal Enterococcus species, such as E.faecalis. The analysis can be used in combination with other faecal indicators, such as E.coli (article number 20040) and Bacteroides dorei (article number U20042). Target Tubes are packed per 50 pieces and are ready to use. The shelf life is at least 1 year at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
