Water Treatment and Analysis

ENDOSAN-Most Advanced Silver Stabilised Hydrogen Peroxide.

EndoSan is a Hydrogen Peroxide which is stabilised using a specially formulated silver based chemistry. The stabilisation process is unique and makes EndoSAN a powerful water disinfectant that provides an effective solution against a wide spectrum of biocidal activity. Independent testing has shown that EndoSan is a highly effective bactericide, virucide, sporicide, fungicide, algaecide and amoebicide.

The EndoSAN range of products is used for disinfection purposes in a wide variety of applications and is proving to be extremely popular across market sectors, including food & beverage, Water Treatment, Agriculture, Cooling Towers, Fish, Meat, Poultry, Food Processing, Drinking Water, Swimming Pools, Sewage Treatment.

Independent testing of EndoSAN shows that it is a fast legionella bactericide, a very effective amoebicide(it kills the Trojan horses) and it removes and treats biofilm, making it an ideal biocide for legionella control. This triple action makes EndoSAN absolutely unique and positions the chemical as real contender to replace chlorine and chlorine dioxide as a continuous dose biocide

Silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide

2.116  Silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide has a history of use in the control of legionella in water systems. A silver hydrogen peroxide solution is injected directly into the water system and ifapplied and maintained according to the manufacturers’ instructions, can be an effective means of control. However, this should not be used in water systems supplying dialysis units

ECBlue – a rapid method for testing the water quality

ECBlue is a simple, quick and reliable test method for the qualitative and quantitative
determination of coliforms and E.coli in water.

ECBlue is simple to handle – our »easy to use«-principle:
Add water to be tested dissolve the ECBlue100P medium in 100ml of the test water. Then incubate the mixture at 35 ± 2° C. The medium does not require further preparation work.
This means that the test can be carried out anywhere without much effort.

ECBlue is quick – our »fast result«-principle:
Traditional incubating methods require about three days for the detection of coliforms or E.coli. ECBlue, on the other hand, already provides reliable test results after 24 hours.

ECBlue is reliable and conclusive – our »safe and clear«-principle:
Detection is based on a colour reaction and is thus easy to interpret: if coliform bacteria are present, the water turns blue due to the cleavage of the chromogenic substrate X-Gal. In the event of faecal contamination by E.coli, these bacteria can only be conclusively detected
under UV light (reaction with a fluorescent dye). Suspended matter, cloudy, yellowish or chlorinated water samples do not generally interfere with detection.

ECBlue is simple to keep – our »easy to store«-principle:
ECBlue does not need to be cooled and has a shelf life of up to two years at room temperature if protected from light. This saves costs.

The optional tool ECBlueQuant provides a rapid and simple method of quantifying coliforms and E.coli in the form of an MPN test (Most Probable Number).

Coliform Positive // E.Coli Positive

Overview of the practical advantages

    • Efficiency: Simultaneous testing of a medium for coliforms and E.coli using a chromogenic enzyme substrate (X-GAL-MUG method).
    • Speed: Test result within 24 hours.
    • Performance: Bacteria stressed by chlorinated water are also detected with ECBlue in most cases.
    • Simple and reliable application: The medium does not need to be sterilised or pre-prepared; readily soluble in water.
    • Conclusive: Unambiguous test results by means of a colour reaction; detection limit of coliforms and E.coli: 1 cfu / 100 ml. Positive samples can be clearly identified by comparison with the ECBlueComparator (bottle with reference fluid).
    • Practical packaging: Blister pack.
    • Long shelf life: Up to two years at room temperature in the absence of light.
    • Long shelf life: Up to two years at room temperature in the absence of light.
    • Cost-saving

Compact Dry AQ – Detection of Heterotrophic Bacteria.

Specimen pretreatment

Viable count in water
Drop 1 ml of the tested water on the middle of the Compact Dry plate.
The sample will diffuse equally all over the Compact Dry AQ plate.

Viable count using filter technology
Following standard procedures for water analysis: for membrane filter water sample please use a 47 mm Mixed Cellulose Ester filter (MCE; 0.45 µm pore size). After water filtration place the filter in the center of the Compact Dry AQ Plate, grid side up. Roll top film down to minimize air bubbles or gaps between the filter and the Compact Dry AQ Plate.

Test instructions

  • Drop 1 ml of the tested water on the middle of the Compact Dry plate.
    Notes
  • Compact Dry plates are produced at an ISO 9001 certified site.
