CRM-AQUA contains 3 different strains each with their growth optimums.
The certificate of Analysis shows two total count method property values namely for 36°C and 22°C incubation. There is a difference in concentration is this two incubation temperatures that is caused by Pseudomonas fluorescens. This strain is not able to grow at 36°C. At 22°C Pseudomonas fluorescens will grow perfectly.

The concentration at 22°C is a sum of concentration of Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis and Pseudomonas fluorescens.
The concentration at 36°C is the sum of the concentration of Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecalis.

Biosisto - Quality in Control

Microbiological laboratories should be able to receive reliable analysis without much overhead. A microbiological analyst must be able to focus on the primary activities, for example analysis of the sample material. Quality control should support the analyst in a logical and simple manner. By using modern information technology, process control and quality assurance are designed smarter and more effective.
