Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing for cyanobacteria concentration in drinking water. Cyanobacteria, also known as "blue-green algae", can enter drinking water supplies during periods of freshwater and marine harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs can occur anytime there is an excessive accumulation of algae growth. Cyanobacteria contamination in drinking water can lead to taste and odor issues, as well as produce toxins (called cyanotoxins) that can cause illness and even death in both humans and animals. This testing package is ideal for people who are located near a harmful algal bloom event and are noticing the unpalatable taste and odor issues in their drinking water.

This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis and enumeration (colony count) of cyanobacteria.


Cyanobacteria Enumeration Water Test

Is this the right test for you?

What our scientists say:

“ Cyanobacteria is a concern if a nearby harmful algal bloom event (HAB) has occurred. Signs of HABs can appear as different colored foam or scum on the surface of the water. These blooms can produce toxins that can cause serious illness. "


This is the right test if you:

    • Water tastes or smells earthy or musty.
    • Located in an area near a recent harmful algal bloom (HAB) event.
