Membrane filter method for enumerating Escherichia coli.

A membrane filter procedure for enumerating Escherichia coli was developed and evaluated. The method quantifies E. coli within 24 h without requiring subculture and identification of isolates. It incorporates a primary selective-differential medium for gram-negative, lactose-fermenting bacteria; resuscitation of weakened organisms by incubation for 2 h at 35 degrees C before incubation at 44.5 ...

S ummary. Membrane filtration has become an accepted method for enumerating Escherichia coli in water, but little published evidence could be found to judge the specificity of the method to assess faecal contamination in either fresh or saline waters. The method is used in our laboratory to monitor the extent and degree of sewage pollution in coastal areas, but there is need for information on ...

Methods for Enumerating Escherichia coli in Subtropical Waters

The standard membrane filtration method of the UK has been modified in order to improve its specificity for enumerating Escherichia coli in the subtropical waters of Hong Kong. This involves incorporating into the membrane lauryl sulphate (mLS) method either an in situ urease test (the mLS-UA method), or an in situ /?-glucuronidase test (the mLS-GUD method). The false-positive errors of the ...

E. COLI ENUMERATION BY MEMBRANE FILTRATION. For detecting E. coli in recreational waters, EPA recommends the membrane filtration method, Escherichia coli in Water by the Membrane Filter Procedure Method 1103.1 1985 developed by Dufour, Strickland, and Cabelli (Dufour and others 1981). This method is commonly used in Vermont by volunteer monitoring groups and the Vermont

Membrane Filter Technique - Learn Microbiology Online

Membrane filter technique is an effective, accepted technique for testing fluid samples for microbiological contamination. It involves less preparation than many traditional methods and is one of a few methods that will allow the isolation and enumeration of microorganisms. Membrane filters are used extensively in the laboratory and in the industry to sterilize fluid materials.

This part of ISO 9308 describes a reference method (Standard Test) for the detection and enumeration of Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria in water for human consumption. The Standard Test is based on membrane filtration, subsequent culture on a differential agar medium and calculation of the number of target organisms in the sample.

Evaluation of the Anderson Baird-Parker direct plating ...

The direct plating (DP) method for enumerating Escherichia coli in food was adapted for water analysis by membrane filtration and a standardized protocol was described. The DP method was found to give equal or better recoveries of E. coli than a membrane filtration method using 0.1% sodium lauryl sulphate agar; the repeatability of the DP method was markedly better. The necessity to
