Sample CBT E. coli Kit Test Results
Obtaining quantitative test results – Most Probable Number (MPN) – with the CBT Kit is easy. Simply align your compartment bag so compartment #1 is on the left and compartment #5 is on the right. Match the color sequence of your five compartments to one of the 32 rows in our MPN Table on page 4 of CBT Instructions for Use.
A compartment is considered positive even if there is just a speck of blue/blue green or if there is only blue/blue green sediment at the bottom of a compartment.
Below are sample test results that indicate the MPN of E. coli in a 100 mL sample.
MPN = 0.0 E. coli /100 mL
Row #1 in MPN Table
MPN = 1.5 E. coli /100 mL
Row #6 in MPN Table
MPN = 48.3 E. coli /100 mL
Row #31 in MPN Table
MPN = >100 E. coli /100 mL
