SMART PACKAGING: box can be used to sample water for testing, vials are design for reliable, accurate test results.
iQ.BAC is a simple, highly sensitive, and easy-to-use screening test to detect fecal coliform bacteria in any water sources. Fecal coliform bacteria are potentially dangerous bacteria and causes serious illnesses.
iQ.BAC testing is easy to do, and it is extremely easy to read. If the test liquid in the vial changes color from yellow to orange or purple, the water is not safe to use.
Fecal coliform bacteria (such as E coli), when present in water indicates potential fecal contamination of the water source. Some E. coli strains can cause serious illness in humans. Infection symptoms include bloody diarrhea, stomach cramps, vomiting and occasionally fever. The bacteria can also cause pneumonia, other respiratory illnesses and urinary tract infections.
When E. coli or other coliform bacteria are detected, the water should not be consumed, and further investigation and testing of the entire system should be initiated.
iQBAC is a quick visual indicator of water quality at home or during your travels, at the cottage, or outdoors.
