Our automatic spread plate method using R2A agar utilizes innovative, top-of-the-line technology to provide dentists with fully extensive, traceable and reliable bacteria results. This US EPA approved method is sensitive enough to recover slow growing, chlorine tolerant bacteria. Dental facilities will receive digital imagery reports showing bacterial colonies for each sample. Reports are available 5-7 days from the date of receipt.
IDEXX SimPlate for HPC correlates to the pour-plate method using multiple unique enzyme substrates that help to recover the most common viable bacteria found in water. The CFU count is correlated to a Most Probable Number (MPN) based on the number of wells that fluoresce. The high number of wells (84) results in a very high counting range and precise 95% confidence limits. The counting range is from <1 to 738 per plate. Reports reflect the CFU count and 95% confidence limits and are available 2-3 days from date of receipt.

Some dental practices have copper piping that can compromise the use of some disinfectants such as silver. If you have copper piping you may want to test for this before using a disinfectant or after continuously failing the 500 CFU/ml guideline. The U.S. EPA’s maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) for copper is 1.3mg/L.
Fluoride a naturally occurring mineral in water that, at the optimal level, can be beneficial to patient’s teeth. The U.S. Public Health Service recommends an optimal fluoride concentration of 0.7mg/L. Too much fluoride, though, can cause tooth decay and brown discoloration.
