About the water bacteria test kit

Use this water test kit to test for bacteria, coliforms, pH, Salinity, Temperature, TDS and conductivity.

This water quality test kit is ideal for environmental science and water testing applications.

The dipslides in this kit test for total count bacteria and coliforms. The Plate Count Agar includes red spot dye which makes it easier to interpret results as the colonies appear as red dots.

The multi parameter handheld tester is waterproof and perfect for field testing. The tester also floats.

Testing kit includes

  • 1 x box of SCT Dipslides with Plate Count Agar (TTC) and MacConkey3 Agar.
  • 1 X 35 °C GNAT MX2 Incubator (can incubate two dipslides at once).
  • Oakton (Eutech) PCSTestr 35 handheld meter which tests for pH, TDS, Conductivity, Salinity and Temperature.


  • Wastewater
  • Education
  • General water testing

Please note: if you wish to test potable water, our HPC Samplers are more appropriate for this purpose.
