Nitri-VIT®

Test kit for rapid analysis, visualization and quantification of ammonia and nitrite oxidizing bacteria

Product Number: 01110001

Detection of nitrifying bacteria

With our testkit Nitri-VIT® the typical nitrifying bacteria populations can easily be analyzed directly in wastewater samples. Both nitrifying bacteria groups, ammonia and nitrite oxidizing bacteria, are differently stained and thus, identified during one analysis. By means of our VIT® key both groups are quantified.

The analysis is easy to perform – with only a few minutes hands-on time. The results are provided within 3 hours. All essential consumables required for analysis are contained in the kit. Package size: 25 analyses.

Data obtained can support an efficient early warning system before chemical parameters indicate problems arise.

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • Activated sludge (directly)
  • Other wastewater samples (directly)
  • Biofilms (directly)

 

You want to send us your samples for analysis?
No problem with Nitri-VIT® rapid analysis.

We are also able to perform specific analyses of nitrifying bacteria or denitrifying bacteria.

Identical microscopic image after analysis with the test kit: phase contrast, nitrite oxidizing bacteria shine green, ammonia oxidizing bacteria red.
Identical microscopic image after VIT® analysis: phase contrast, nitrite oxidizing bacteria shine green, ammonia oxidizing bacteria red.

Advantages

  • parallel detection of both ammonia and nitrite oxidizing bacteria
  • quantitative results lead to an efficient early warning system
  • analysis directly in wastewater samples
  • detection of living bacteria only
  • fast results
