Membrane Filter for E. coli

Polysulfone Filter Funnel on Filter Manifold. The filter funnel to the right is used to pour the water sample through the filter. It sits atop the manifold base which is magnetic and prevents any of the sample from escaping during filtration by holding the filter funnel securely to the base. The stopcock below is turned to allow a vacuum to be applied to the filter thereby facilitating and speeding up the filtration process. Filter funnels are sterilized using an autoclave before filtration to prevent cross contamination.

Filter Placement Placing the membrane filter onto the petri dish containing the modified m-TEC media. Be sure to flame the tweezers with alcohol before handling filters. Place filter on media plate by starting one corner and “rolling” the rest of the filter down so it lies in contact with the media.

Incubation of E. coli with Modified m-TEC Incubate prepared media plates at 35 degrees C. for two hours to resuscitate any stressed microorganisms. Then incubate at 44.5 C. For 22+/- 2h. Then just count the E. coli colonies!

Modified m-TEC Plates with E. coli The plate to the right shows a Modified m-TEC media plate with E. coli colonies shown in bright red-magenta color. Modified m-TEC represents an improvement in technique because it combines a single step procedure with a chromogen that makes the red-magenta E. coli colonies easy to read and identify.
