Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many test can be done with one kit?
A: Each box contains everything you need for 24 tests
Q: What happens if I add less or too much water?
A: The test is designed to use a specific sample concentration ratio, so it is important to use the right sample volume to ensure the accuracy of the result.
Q: What does it means if the vial remains pink in the first 30 minutes but changes color a couple hours or a couple of days later?
A: The reagent will attach to the cell membrane of the microorganisms present in the sample in the first 30-60 minutes, after which it the cells with the membrane coated with our reagent will start to settle in the vial, as a result you will notice that at microbial concentration close to the detection limit the color will change initially to pink and eventually turn clear.
If the bacteria levels are below detection limit the reagent will not change color even after a few days.
