Compact Dry EC (E.coli and coliforms)
Bacteria form blue and red colonies
Compact Dry EC is a medium for E.coli and coliforms. The medium contains two kinds of chromogenic enzyme substrates: Magenta-Gal and X-Gluc. E.coli forms blue colonies. The total coliform group count is the sum of both the red and blue colonies.
Regression line data from Compact Dry EC method plotted versus the conventional VRBA method (violet red bile agar) shows a good correlation per 50 food samples for the population of coliforms. Compact Dry EC is AOAC approved.
