Self-Testing Nitrate-related Bacteria
Test your drinking water for the presence of both nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria with this at-home self-testing kit. Nitrate-related bacteria is known to form and destroy nitrates in drinking water. Nitrates are a particular concern for families with infants or pregnant mothers–especially those living in close proximity to agricultural activity. This at-home kit can be a cost-effective way to screen for these bacteria. However, for precise, high-accuracy testing, we recommend an in-lab testing package.
Important: This at-home test kit should be ordered as an addition to a laboratory test package (i.e. Core Kit: Essential, Advanced, or Extended package). Results from lab testing are often very important towards making sense of self-testing kit results.
