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.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
