The Target Tube Enterococcus measures fecal contamination in a water sample. The qPCR analysis is fast and accurately quantifies the presence of major 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 for use. The shelf life is at least 1 year at room temperature, if stored in the dark.
The importance of this qPCR measurement is that we can measure the quality of swimming water on the day itself instead of 3 days before.
