Water Testing

Fecal Indicators

The Rheonix CARD® can easily and rapidly assess recreational water for the presence and viability of
fecal indicators. Close

Testing for fecal indicators is routinely performed at beaches to ensure that the water is not contaminated with potentially pathogenic bacteria. The Rheonix CARD can easily and rapidly assess recreational water for the presence and viability of fecal indicators, including E. coli, Enterococcus faecium, E. faecalis, E. gallinarum, and E. avium.

Cryptosporidium

The Rheonix CryptoCARD can analyze water samples in three hours and distinguish viable from
nonviable oocysts. Close

Cryptosporidum spp, a family of pathogens found in drinking and recreational water, can cause debilitating diarrhea leading to serious illness in humans and death in immune-compromised individuals. To monitor water for the presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts, water utilities rely on manually searching for oocysts under a microscope–where live oocysts are indistinguishable from dead. The Rheonix CryptoCARD can analyze water samples in three hours and distinguish viable from nonviable oocysts.
