Now that school's out and Summer party season is in full swing, you might be entertaining in your pool and hot tub more than ever. If you are expecting your kids, grandkids, friends and neighbours over for a pool and hot tub party, it is a good idea to make sure that the water is clean, clear and safe for them to use. Get added peace of mind by checking your water with AquaVial - the new fast, accurate and easy to use bacteria test kit which is now available at The Sundance Spa Store.
Aquavial is a truly innovative bacteria in water testing kit, capable of detecting even low level of bacteria, biofilm and fungi contamination. The proprietary T-Cup unit included in the kit concentrates water samples ten times to increase test sensitivity, thus offering reliable results every time to ensure your pool or hot tub water is as safe as possible.
AquaVial is based on a cutting-edge technology developed at the University of Waterloo in Canada. It uses functionalized nano-particles that attach to the outer cell membrane of microorganisms. It is a non-specific, quantitative method that does not require any growth media, and this is what makes the test different.
The test is based on a color change produced by a change in aggregation of the nanoparticles in the solution, as they attach to the cell membrane, which leads to a shift in color from pink to purple, and a decrease in color intensity (from colored to clear) that can be seen visually observed, or measured using a colorimeter.
The product was originally developed to test the water quality in dental offices, and validated by two independent water research centres in Canada.
In addition to testing pool and spa water, AquaVial can be used in a wide range of other applications, such as: fountains and water features, testing drinking water from municipal water supply, well water & cooling water.
- WIDEST BACTERIA DETECTION RANGE OF ANY RAPID MICROBIAL TESTING AVAILABLE: AquaVial detects disease-causing bacteria such as E coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas and strains known to be responsible for biofilm formation in water system
- RELIABLE AND FAST RESULTS: Every test kit provides 100% reliable results in as little as 15 minutes
