How to Read Coliform Tests Anytime – Day or Night
Test 24/7 with Tecta
With easy-to-start tests and automated sample reads, IDEXX Tecta® means you can test samples anytime. Tecta is a complete, self-contained automated microbiology testing system. The method is U.S. EPA-approved for detecting total coliform and E. coli in drinking water.* Results are sent anytime, anywhere by email – with positive results available within hours.
There is no need to delay testing based on a read window. With Tecta, you can be responsive during main breaks, construction, and more – without calling in staff for overtime.
Start the sample when it comes in. No reason to reject samples or delay testing because the lab isn’t open during the read window.
Positive results within hours. You don’t need to wait until tomorrow to see a positive – you’ll be notified of positives immediately via email.
Easy-to-use interface. Operators or other personnel can be trained to start tests if lab staff are not available.
