Heterotrophic bacteria are broadly defined as microorganisms that require organic carbon for growth. They include bacteria, yeasts and molds.

This HPC test, or heterotrophic plate count, analyzes you water sample for the broad presence of heterotrophic bacteria and reports the total count of heterotrophic bateria. This testing kit is an excellent way to demonstrate a quantified presence and absence of microbial activity in your water supply. 

Because microbiology fluctuate with time and temperature, we include next day shipping to ensure your sample is received quickly at the lab.

Informational testing

By default, this broad-based chemical and biological water quality screening package is designed to provide you with general information about your water for personal use. Each report includes analysis for specific numerical concentration levels of each contaminant and details about the potential sources and health effects associated with each parameter. We are not medical doctors and Tap Score does not provide medical advice. For medical concerns always consult your doctor. As an informational water quality test, this package is not meant for state or federal compliance water testing. If you or your organization requires compliance with State or Federal Law, or compliance with a particular regulatory requirement then you must contact our support team and we will use the appropriate certified laboratory facilities to ensure your compliance testing requirements are met.
