MicroSnap™ E. coli Test Kit is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of E. coli bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of E. coli bacteria react with specialized substrates to produce light. The light generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap E.coli is able to give results in the same day. Learn more...

A new light on microbial detection.

MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable same-day test results. The MicroSnap test platform consists of an Enrichment Device containing a specific growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate. When MicroSnap detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with Hygiena’s EnSURE luminometer. Results are stored and tracked with Hygiena’s complimentary SureTrend software for further data analysis and trending.

No more counting colonies. 


Colony Forming Units 

Traditional plating methods utilize colony counting techniques to determine CFU levels. MicroSnap technology derives equivalent CFU values using light detection.



Relative Light Units

EnSURE displays measurements in relative light units (RLU’s). The RLU number is correlated to colony forming units (CFU’s).

Same-day results.

The entire MicroSnap test process is complete in the same day.



Sample is collected and enriched at the beginning of the shift and incubated.

Flexible for filterable samples.

Testing a large-volume liquid sample for Coliforms? MicroSnap Coliform & E. coli Enrichment Broth is available in a 2mL vial for use with filtered samples, delivering same-day results. Earlier results mean held product can be released sooner, drastically cutting inventory and warehouse costs for beverage processors. 

The method is AOAC approved and validated against the EPA method. Download the brochure to learn more: MicroSnap Enrichment Broth 2mL for Large Volume Filterable Liquid Testing



Microbiology in a Snap.

MicroSnap's efficient design makes microorganism testing easier than ever. Each device's patented Snap-Valve™ holds a precise amount of specific enrichment broth, ready to be used for either product or surface samples. Within the enrichment device is a built-in pipette, enabling convenient and efficient transfer of enriched sample to the detection device.
