Events & Workshops
Scan VIT® Live Demonstration
The new Scan VIT® technology features a revolutionary detection limit of only 1 cell per sample volume. This is achieved by the artificial intelligence (AI)-based VIT® Vision software. Combined with the specific VIT® gene probes and the VIT® scanner, it provides a fully automated identification and absolute quantification of single cells in the sample within a very short time.
At two live demonstrations of Scan VIT®, held in Munich and Hamburg, we would like to show you how this is possible. In the course of the three-hour demonstration, the functional principle and the workflow of the new Scan VIT® technology will be presented and explained to you.
Get acquainted with the new Scan VIT® technology and experience its power for yourself!
The demonstration is free of charge. As the number of participants is limited, we ask you for a timely registration. Please check the registration form for detailed information regarding the schedule and locations of the events. Registration via online form, email oder telephone is possible until 31 January, 2018.
The Scan VIT® Technology
Scan VIT® can be applied wherever detection of microorganisms in liquid matrices is required. Thanks to the detection limit of only 1 cell per sample / filtration volume, a pre-enrichment of the sample is no longer necessary.
Scan VIT® Showrooms
You are interested in the Scan VIT® technology, but will not be able to attend the live demonstrations? Starting in Q2/2018, you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the technology in our showrooms in Munich and Hamburg. Please write us and we will be in touch as soon as the first dates are set.
vermicon Wastewater Workshops – interesting and relevant
The central topic of the practical workshop "Microbiology of wastewater" are wastewater microorganisms. For without their help, modern wastewater treatment would be impossible. The workshop consists of a theortical part, followed by a practical part. The workshop "Microbiology of wastewater" will again be held in 2018. Exact dates to be announced in good time.
In the theoretical part, you will become acquainted with the microbiological correlations in the wastewater treatment plant habitat. You will be introduced to the basics of wastewater microbiology and will also receive an overview over the latest scientific finding about nitrifying and filamentous bacteria in wastewater treatment plant and their detection via gene probe technology. Subsequently, you will be shown how, by direct monitoring of microorganisms, an early warning system can be implemented in wastewater treatment facilities.
The practical part includes a professional analysis of your sludge samples in our laboratories ( it will be performed in advance) as well as an open evaluation and discussion of analysis results.
Talks at neighbourhood meetings in the wastewater sector
vermicon gives talks at neighbourhood meetings all across Germany. These talks provide an attractive outline of wastewater microbiology and point out how wastewater treatment plants can benefit from analyzing their microbiology.
There are absolutely no costs for the hosting neighbourhood. Are you interested in a talk? Just request our corresponding information material or reserve a date for a talk appointment at your neighbourhood meeting, without obligation.
