  • Compatible with Open qPCR Real-Time PCR instrument


Commonly used fecal indicator organisms do not indicate the true level of human contamination, which is more relevant when making risk-based decisions for public health. Bacteroides HF183 is a better indicator organism for human-specific contamination. Chai's Bacteroides HF183 qPCR Test Kit provides all the consumables needed to filter a 100 mL water sample and detect and quantify HF183 by qPCR.

The kit is compatible with Chai's Open qPCR or other Real-Time instruments supporting 100 μL tubes. The kit provides materials for 48 tests which can be used for samples or blanks.
