Surface & bathing Water

ColiMinder™ is able to detect fecal and microbiological contamination in surface and bathing water within 15 minutes.

essential source

Surface water an essential source for drinking water, also serving people as bathing and recreational waters. Its microbiological quality is of essence as people get in direct touch, thus its microbiological contamination is affecting directly to people’s health.

How does the coliminder detect microbiological contamination real-time in surface and bathing water?

By measuring the enzymatic activity of living faecal indicators (E.coli or enterococci) present in the sample, the ColiMinder is able to determine the level of faecal contamination in surface and bathing water.

A first step into a new era: microbiological contamination measurement is available in real-time, enabling a dramatic increase in efficiency & safety of water treatment process for all water related processes.

Due to the short time to result (15 minutes), the microbiological parameter is now available first time for process control and early warning.
