Hach m-TEC (Modified) Agar Membrane Filtration Plates selectively test for Escherichia coli (E.coli) in recreational water through the membrane filtration method. Prepared m-TEC (Modified) Agar Membrane Filtration Plates contain enough medium for one test.

Incubation is required for at least 2 hours at 35 ± 0.5 °C then 22 hours at 44.5 ± 0.2 °; the tests have a shelf life of 1 year at 2–8 °C. The m-TEC (Modified) Agar Membrane Filtration Plates meet approval citations Federal Register V 68; #139 (7/21/2003). The Membrane Filtration (MF) method is used to estimate bacterial populations in water that is low in turbidity. This method is especially useful for large sample volumes or for many daily tests.

Lake Malawi: A Treasure to Protect

Lake Malawi (also known as Lake Nyasa and Lake Niassa) doubles as a Rift Valley Lake and one of the seven African Great Lakes. Due to its unique biodiversity, it’s a great place to conduct limnological studies. Harvey Bootsma is a professor for the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and has had an interest in limnology ever since he was a kid. Bootsma fondly recalls summer vacations to Georgian Bay, Ontario, “I probably spent as much time in the water as I did out of it.” He continues, "I remember telling myself, ‘I’m going to get a job where I can stay here all the time.’” While Harvey didn’t end up working on Georgian Bay, he was offered a job working on Lake Malawi. He continued working there while completing his Ph.D.

Microbes and Human Health: Aquatic Microbial Communities May Hold Clues about How Deadly Pathogens Spread

Aquatic ecosystems are incredibly complex, with many different biotic and abiotic factors constantly interacting. Microbial communities are a key part of aquatic ecosystems, involved in the constant flow of energy and recycling of organic matter, according to Science Direct .  The true scope of microbial community impacts on aquatic ecosystems is still not entirely understood. Eric Benbow, a professor of community ecology at Michigan State University, is exploring how microbial communities and pathogens may be negatively impacting human health, and how a changing climate could worsen this problem.  How Do Pathogens Arise? Benbow, along with his students and colleagues, are studying a realm of community ecology that is still relatively unknown.
