Microorganisms cost the oil & gas, water, and manufacturing industries billions of dollars in damage annually by corroding metal, degrading product, and inhibiting processes.
Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) is a highly sensitive DNA-based analysis that can be used to detect and quantify those microbes or groups of microbes that are known to be significant in your process. Results of this analysis can help you to quickly understand if you are at risk so you can take action faster, while making better decisions.
Now imagine having access to this kind of DNA data while in the field.
LuminUltra's GeneCount™ in-field qPCR solution gives you the tools you need to run DNA analysis on your samples, review the results, and make immediate targeted treatment decisions based on that feedback, all in approximately 2 hours and while onsite. Because there is no need to get samples back to a lab for testing, samples don’t need to be preserved. This is a huge benefit for remote or offshore locations – where shipping samples is costly and not always readily available.
