Steps for Modified m-TEC Testing

(See slide presentation of the method) 



 Step 1. Filter the sample with a sterile cellulosic 0.45 micron filter as per EPA method 1603. 

 Step 2. With flamed (sterile) tweezers, gently place the filter on the modified m-TEC media plates by placing it on one end rolling it to the other edge. (see pdf slide presentation)

 Step 3. Incubate this plate first at 35 degrees Celcius for two hours to resuscitate stress microorganisms and then at 44.5 degrees Celcius for 22 (+/- 2 hours).

 Step 4. That's it. You are done!. Simply count the dark / red magenta colonies.
