What Is AquaVial?
AquaVial is a do-it-yourself test that detects unsafe levels of bacteria present in water. According to the EPA, safe drinking water should have levels of bacteria not exceeding 500 CFU/ml.
AquaVial detects disease-causing bacteria such as E coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas and strains known to be responsible for biofilm formation in water system, as well as many other bacteria and fungi.
How Does AquaVial Work?
The liquid in the test vial, when used in combination with our proprietary T-Cup,will change color from pink to purple if you bacteria count slightly exceeds 500 CFU/ML.
The liquid will become clear if the bacteria count in the water sample greatly exceeds than 500 cfu/mL.
Can AquaVial Differentiate Between Different Types of Bacteria, Such as E-Coli and Salmonella?
AquaVial is a positive/negative test that will tell you if the level of bacteria in water exceed 500 CFU/ml. The test does not differentiate between E coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and other type of pathogen.
Can AquaVial Be Used To Test For Lead?
No, AquaVial cannot detect the presence of lead in water.
How Many Tests Can Be Performed with One Kit?
Each AquaVial kit can be used to perform a single test.
Does AquaVial Have an Expiry Date?
Yes. Check your AquaVial packaging for the expiry date for your particular kit.
Where is AquaVial Made?
AquaVial is developed and manufactured by Genemis Laboratories in Canada.
How Does AquaVial Compare with Similar Kits That Use Test Strips?
AquaVial uses the proprietary T-Cup to concentrate the water sample up to ten times, which makes possible the detection of levels of bacteria that only slightly exceed 500 CFU/ml.
Typically, water tests based on test strips are not this sensitive.
In addition, due to its testing methodology and components, AquaVial is guarantee to work and provide reliable results every time.
What Should I Do In Case Turns Out Positive?
A positive test result (the liquid in the test vial turns clear) signals the an unsafe bacteria count in your water. There are a few potential solutions based on each individual scenario:
• Water has to be treated or filtered to reduce the level of bacteria in water.
• Your current water treatment is not working as expected and has to be adjusted.
• Further, more precise lab testing is required.
