Details

P/A Broth with MUG allows simultaneous detection of total coliform bacteria and E. coli. In addition to the lactose and lauryl tryptose broths with bromcresol purple, this medium contains MUG reagent (4-methylumbelliferyl-b-D-glucuronide). The MUG reagent produces a fluorogenic product when hydrolyzed by glucuronidase (an enzyme specific to E. coli). MUG detects non gasproducing (anaerogenic) strains of E. coli and works well when competitive organisms are present.

 

Combine 100 mL of sample and P/A Broth with MUG, incubate for 24 hours and check for a color change and fluorescence. A yellow color indicates the presence of total coliforms. To detect E. coli, examine samples under a long-wave ultraviolet (UV) light. Fluorescence indicates the presence of E. coli.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can we perform an indole test instead of using UV light for confirmation?
This test is designed to use florescence as an indicator of bacteria. The indole test requires Kovac's reagent, which is not included with this item.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
