Saturday, 01 June, 2019 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


TECTA B4 is a self-contained ‘lab in a box’ solution capable of providing laboratory-grade results onsite with good time-to-result performance. Designed for industry and offering ease of use, samples can be run with three simple steps: add sample, load the cartridge, press start.

The system offers automated detection and quantitation of E. coli, total coliforms, faecal coliforms and Enterococcus with a dynamic range of 1 to 108 CFU in 100 mL without requirement for sample dilution in water matrices. This technology is suitable for a range of applications in food and beverage manufacturing, from incoming water, final product testing through to wastewater management.

The AOAC certified TECTA system is capable of providing positive results in 2 h and confirmed negative in 18 h for E. coli and total coliforms. The system uses an enzyme-substrate method combined with a patented polymer partition technology and optical detection system, which eliminates interferants such as turbidity, sample colour and high concentrations of bacteria. The instrument is network compatible and upon detection of a positive result or confirmed absent, the instrument can send automated notifications. Thermo Fisher Scientific is the exclusive distributor for TECTA-PDS in Australia and New Zealand.
