Within Minutes, 2nd Generation ATP® Tests Answer The Question “Am I In Control?” BUT … What If The Answer Is “No”? Within Minutes, 2nd Generation ATP® Tests Answer The Question “Am I In Control?” BUT … What If The Answer Is “No”?

With many DNA measurement and sequencing service providers on the market today, why did LuminUltra chose Microbe Detectives? Because they offer MORE data. They’ll not only tell you ‘who’ is in your sample – they will also provide a report detailing what the presence of those microorganisms means for your application and what you can do about any challenges that are identified.

Are You Monitoring The Biomass? Are You Monitoring The Biomass?

It’s the most fundamental aspect of biological wastewater treatment. Wastewater operators, process engineers and plant managers have traditionally relied upon suspended solid measurements to quantify biomass in their process.

    Harmful Algal Blooms – What’s In Your Drinking Water Intake?

    In August 2014, the city of Toledo, Ohio informed its residents (~500,000 people) that they should not use tap water for any purposes including bathing and cooking. The culprit: microcystin, a toxin produced by blue-green algae, had been detected in the city’s finished drinking water at concentrations 2.5 times the World Health Organization’s guideline value.

    Myth Vs Truth: “If My Disinfectant Residual Is Always High Enough, I Don’t Have To Worry About Microbes"

    Monitoring of disinfectant residuals ensures that sufficient protection is maintained at all points in the distribution system. The absence of a disinfectant residual means that suppression of microbiological growth is much more difficult and the rate of regrowth can be significantly accelerated. But does maintaining an adequate disinfectant residual provide enough protection?

    Top Monitoring Tools For Membrane Bioreactors

    With increasing pressure on water resources, efficient and reliable wastewater treatment systems are crucial. Plants are searching for solutions that offer a smaller footprint and higher quality effluent. Over the last 15 years, membrane bioreactors (MBRs) have become increasingly common in both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and help mitigate against effluent suspended solid issues. These systems combine a membrane filter with an activated sludge process where microorganisms are able to thrive and break down contaminants.
