TECTA-B4 Automated Microbiology Detection System


TECTA-B4 Automated Microbial Detection Systems

  • Rapid alerting with no fixed incubation delay
  • High reliability with minimal handling of samples
  • No sample preparation or visual interpretation of results required
  • Initiate a test anytime, with automatic reporting of results that are sent directly via email notification to any device immediately upon detection
  • Simple operation that does not require specialized personnel
  • High dynamic range eliminates need for multiple dilutions
  • Direct testing of turbid samples
  • Industry-standard enzyme indicators of target bacteria
  • Self-contained desktop packaging with touch-screen control
Principle of Operation Patented Polymer Partition™ test technology senses fluorescent indicator of enzyme activity of target organism, excludes water sample from optical path for high turbidity resistance.
Target Organisms
  • Broad-spectrum E. coli (glucuronidase enzyme)
  • Total Coliforms (galactosidase enzyme)
  • Fecal Coliforms (galactosidase enzyme)
Available Tests Up to 4 simultaneous tests for E. coli, Total Coliform and Fecal Coliform presence/absence with count estimation for level of severity indication on positive results.
Sample Handling Manual sample acquisition with Direct-to-Test™ capability eliminates sample handling and mixing of reagents.
Range Dynamic range of <1 to >106CFU in 100 ml without requirement for sample dilution.
Operating Modes Fully automatic interpretation and alarms, with optional remote alarms by email, or SMS message (dataconnection required).
Automatic system confirmation and calibration.
Run Mode – Incubation and interpretation in 2 - 18 hours.
Read Mode – Interpretation of pre-incubated samples in 60 seconds
