The Heterotrophic (S2-HETER) Vial is designed to detect aerobic and facultative anaerobic heterotrophic bacteria in water, with a low nutrient requirement. The vial has broad inclusivity and an assay time of 48 hours for most applications. As organisms grow in the broth medium, the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced diffuses through a membrane layer into a soft agar plug containing a dye indicator. The color change in the dye is read by the BioLumix® instrument. The membrane layer also serves as a barrier, eliminating product interference with the reading frame.
