TECTA™ B16 Rapid Automated Microbial Detection System

Microbiology testing has never been this easy and accurate.

The TECTA™ B16 is a complete, self-contained, automated microbiology testing system capable of providing laboratory-grade results on-site with unprecedented time-to-result performance. The TECTA B16 offers the capability to conduct up to 16 simultaneous tests for presence/absence, versus the TECTA™ B4 which has only four testing compartments, for a much smaller footprint.

About the TECTA™ B16 Automated Microbiology Detection System

TECTA™ is an automated microbiological platform that uses patented Polymer Partition technology to rapidly and reliably detect E. coli, Total Coliforms, Faecal Coliforms and Enterococci contamination. The TECTA™ B16 platform is simple, sensitive and flexible, allowing for testing of samples at any time of the day. TECTA™ B16 will automatically transmit data allowing for immediate notification on electronic devices, such as mobile phones or laptops, as soon as a contamination event is detected. The B16 also features optional quantitative reporting in CFU per 100ml on positive results.
