IIT : low-cost and one-of-a-kind E.coli Water Testing Kit to check contamination in drinking H2O

Kanpur, June 20 (UNI) Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur has developed an enzyme-substrate medium-based E.coli. water testing kit that is highly sensitive and can detect the presence or absence of a single E.coli. in drinking water.
A team led by Prof. Indra Sekhar Sen, from the Department of Earth Science, has developed this testing kit. This E.coli water testing kit is low cost and field trials were successfully conducted and validated in the state of Odisha.
The kit is developed with support and guidance from Jal Jeevan Mission and won the National Jal Jeevan Mission's Innovation Challenge for Developing Portable Devices to Test Drinking Water Quality. The kit is very easy to use, and false-positive results are rare as it is specific to E.coli. bacteria. It has lower cost and higher accuracy, as well as technological advantages over similar currently available kits in the market.
