Enterolert® Rapid Enterococci Test (IDEXX)

Enterolert detects and quantifies enterococci in just 24 hours. Sample fluoresces to indicate the presence of enterococci. Eliminate tedious membrane filtration work. Enterolert is an official ASTM Method (#D6503-99).
Shelf life: Up to 18 months at 4-30°C.
Enterolert has a significantly lower rate of false positives and false negatives than membrane filtration, giving it a sensitivity of 99.6% and a specificity of 94.9%, as indicated under the Specs Tab.
