  1. Simplate Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC) analysis

    Simplate Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC) analysis
    SimPlate for HPC method is used for the quantification of heterotrophic plate counts (HPC) in water. It is based on patented Multiple Enzyme Technology, which detects viable bacteria in water by testing for the presence of key enzymes known to be present in these organisms. It uses multiple enzyme substrates that produce a blue fluorescence when metabolized by waterborne bacteria. The sample and media are added to a SimPlate, incubated, and then examined for fluorescing wells. The number of fluorescing wells corresponds to a Most Probable Number (MPN) of total bacteria in the original sample. Used in the Octo Marine MLC-2006 potable water compliant analysis kit The MPN values generated by the SimPlate for HPC method correlate with the Pour Plate method using Total Plate Count Agar incubated at 35°C for 48 hours as described in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water. Easier to read and use than the pour-plate method. No agar preparation. 738/plate Most Probable Number (MPN) counting range minimizes need for dilutions. Rapid Instant media preparation. Less than 2 minutes of hands-on time. Reduced read time. Accurate Correlates with U.S. EPA-approved pour-plate method1 using plate count agar and 48-hour, 35°C incubation. Simplified procedure minimizes chance of contamination. Less subjective interpretation than pour plate. Economical Less equipment to purchase and maintain. Increased productivity saves labour costs. Minimal Quality Control (QC).
