The TECTA™ B16 provides on-site water testing solution designed to detect E. coli and total coliforms. It is suitable for use with drinking water, waste water, reclaim water, bottled water and ice packing plants. The system consists of the TECTA™ automated microbiology system and the TECTAlert™ test cartridge. The networking capabilities allow for immediate notification and early warning of positive sample results as soon as they occur. The front touch-screen display interface (17,7 cm) controls all functions and an optional USB port for the keyboard. This self-contained bench top device contains 16 incubation chambers. The patented polymer Partition™ test technology senses fluorescent indicator of enzyme activity of the target organism, excludes water sample from optical path for high turbidity resistance. Manual sample acquisition with Direct-to-Test™ capability eliminates sample handling and mixing of reagents.
