Coliform Bacteria and Water

Testing water for Coliform bacteria and their presence in water enables researchers to determine whether disease causing organisms are present in the water or environment.

Water Testing Labs for total coliform, fecal coliform, and E. coli bacteria

These three categories of coliform bacteria are measures of the water quality:

  • Water testing for total coliform bacteria

    Commonly found in the environment, total coliform bacteria found during water testing are more probable to be from the environment rather than from feces, etc.

  • Water testing for fecal coliform bacteria

    When fecal coliform bacteria are discovered to be in a water sample, it is often an indicator of recent contamination, which could mean that the bacteria / pathogens are possibly still present in the sample.

  • Water testing for E. coli bacteria

    When E. coli is determined to be in a water sample, it is also an indicator of recent fecal contamination and it is again probable that pathogens / bacteria are still present in the water sample.

Water testing procedures for coliform bacteria:

  • Membrane Filter
  • Multiple Tube Fermentation
  • MPN - Most Probable Number
  • MMO-MUG ("Colilert")
