Not knowing the quality of your water can be devastating to everyone, especially your operation.


Mr. Yu Lei, Senior Microbiologist at PUB, explained how their decision to invest in TECTA™ was based on how the technology “offers many advantages when compared to the standard method, including: ease of operation, shorter detection time, automatic results interpretation, and advanced methods of reporting including immediate email notification of results.”

“TECTA™ offers us an alternate and complementary method for testing E. coli and Total Coliforms in the lab,” he continued and then added, “it reduces the detection time, and eliminates the steps for results interpretation and reporting as compared to the current method used in the lab.”

Mr. Lei also noted how simple the TECTA™ unit is to use, stating that, “even those without a microbiological background can perform the test.”

With a water network as diverse and integrated as Singapore’s, being able to utilize the TECTA™ B16 means that PUB can save time and money in the lab and in the field. The experts at PUB have embraced the TECTA™ technology and its speed, accuracy, and ease of use.

The TECTA™ B16 provides PUB the solution for a fast, reliable and completely automated testing platform for E. coli and Total Coliforms.


A self-contained bench top device that houses 16 incubation chambers, the TECTA™ B16 uses the directed enzyme-substrate method combined with a patented Polymer Partition technology and spectrometer to actively read and interpret test results. Receive positive results within as little as two hours and negative within eighteen directly to your computer, tablet or smartphone.

3 simple steps :

  • Just add water – no dilutions required
  • Load cartridge into TECTATM B16
  • Press start

industries WE SERVE


E. coli outbreaks are on the rise, which means municipalities are becoming increasingly aware of how important it is to ensure the safety of their water supply.

Food and Beverage

Even with advances in farming, distribution, processing and storage practices, E. coli outbreaks continue to occur throughout the food chain.

Recreational Water

The number of people contracting E. coli from recreational bathing water is on the rise. When regularly testing water quality, you want to be certain you get results quickly, accurately and efficiently.

Military / Disaster Relief

Military personnel defend our country; it’s vital we do our best to keep them healthy. Anywhere military personnel are stationed they deserve the best training, equipment, and care available.

Institutions / Remote Locations

It is vital for all campuses and institutions to ensure their water supply is flowing clean, safe and pure. When the health and safety of guests, visitors or residents is at risk, every second counts.


For farmers and growers, crop irrigation is a vital part of their farming practices. But what do you do if the water that is bringing life is also carrying E. coli?

When the health of many is at stake,
you need answers fast.
