What it Tests
This tests one sample of water for Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC)
This test can be done on any kind of water (drinking water, salt water, wastewater, surface water, etc.)
Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC): This test measures colony formation on culture media of heterotrophic bacteria in drinking water. Can be used to measure the overall bacteriological quality of drinking water in public, semi-public and private water systems. High levels of HPC bacteria in a distribution or plumbing system result from bacteria regrowth where bacteria that resisted treatment can grow. You can find our individual HPC test here.
