Potable Water

Potable water / drinking water dipslide tests

HPC tests are ideal for testing drinking water / potable water testing. HPC samplers test for heterotrophic plate count. Heterotrophs include bacteria, yeasts and moulds.

These tests detect chlorine stressed / damaged micro-organisms as well as healthy micro-organisms. Due to this, HPC tests are often used to test chlorine treated water.

These HPC tests are quantitative and more sensitive than traditional dipslides. This makes them ideal for applications where microbiological concentration limit guidelines are low (between 1 & 300 cfu/ml).

Drinking water standards: the general accepted limits are 100 cfu/ml but please check with local guidelines.
