Simple Test Procedure 

  1. Remove contents from pouch
  2. Add Assay Buffer to test vial

  4. Place the test strip into the test vial with arrows pointing down
  5. Leave for 10 minutes, then remove test strip from vial and read results

Interpreting Results

Positive Result

Any colour development at Line 1 or Line 2 indicates the presence of bacteria in the sample.

  • If both line 1 and line 2 are present, a gram-negative organism has been detected
  • If line 2 is present and line 1 is absent then a gram-positive organism has likely been detected  

Negative Result

If only the Control Line develops colour - no bacteria detected 

Invalid Result

If the Control Line does not develop colour, the result is invalid - Repeat test
