PathoScreen™ using the WhirlPak® Fecal Bacteria Water Test Kits provide an indication as to the quality of water tested via the presence or absence of fecal bacteria. The kits do not test for other disease causing organisms (virus, protozoa, nematodes, etc.). As contamination by fecal bacteria indicates a compromised water system, home test kits may be a first step to diagnosing contamination.
