The Oxfam-DelAgua Dual Incubator Kit is designed for microbiological water monitoring via detection of indicator organisms (fecal coliforms) for E. coli, cholera, salmonella and other fecal waterborne pathogens. The kit can be run from a DC power adaptor or the separate external battery pack.
The kit is designed to carry out seven tests to measure the quality of drinking water: -microbiological quality at 2 temperatures of incubation -total coliform (due to twin chambers) -turbidity -free chlorine -total chlorine -pH -temperature
Users require the following items to start testing: -Pressure cooker, portable sterilizer or access to an autoclave e.g. in a hospital. -Methanol (approx. 1 ml per-test) -Distilled water -1 liter measuring cylinder or beaker -Clean cloths
The Oxfam-DelAgua Dual Incubator Kit is primarily used in the field, but may also be used in a laboratory or other permanent locations. The kit can be supplied with a range of accessories and upgrades that will increase the scope of water quality monitoring. It has been upgraded into a Pelican Case for easy carrying and durability. Each kit is provided with a complete pack of consumables for 200 plates and a range of spare and replacement parts are available for all equipment and apparatuses.
The kit was designed to help provide information about the safety of water supplies in difficult situations where laboratory facilities do not exist. Additional equipment can be included on request to test for chemicals that may be of local importance.
