PathoGel is a single use, self-contained test with selective medium designed to detect coliform, E. coli and hydrogen sulfide producing enterobacteriaceae (e.g., salmonella, citrobacter) in food, beverages and waters.

PathoGel contains a special “gelling” agent that allows quantitation of colony forming units as well as presence/ absence determination.
