A chromogenic medium for the differentiation and enumeration of Escherichia coli and other coliforms, which simplifies the membrane filtration technique by reducing the number of filtration stages and the need for further confirmation steps. This medium is described in the Environment Agency′s report of UK, ′Methods for Examination of Waters and Associated Material - The Microbiology of Drinking Water (2002) - Part 4 - Methods for the isolation and enumeration of coliform bacteria and Escherichia coli (including E. coli O157:H7).
