VIT® for Filaments

Rapid detection of known filaments in wastewater samples

Product Number: 01130015

Lab analysis of filamentous bacteria in wastewater

By using special gene probes the most important problem causing filamentous bacteria in wastewater are analyzed. Only living bacteria will be detected.

Results are displayed according to the VIT® keys. The report contains a representative photo documentation that visualizes the filamentous bacteria in the wastewater sample.

You will find a detailed description in our article dealing with filaments in activated sludge.

Qualitative oder quantitative detection?
Semi-quantitative detection

Which method is applied?
The reliable VIT® gene probe technology.

Which requirements are important?
Please request our simple protocol for fixation of wastewater samples. Make sure that you fix/stabilize your samples in the indicated manner before sending the samples to us.

This service is also available as serviceplus.

 

You would prefer to perform the analysis on site? We offer a range of kits for filamentous bacteria:
VIT® 1851
VIT® 021N/Thiothrix
VIT® Chloroflexi
VIT® Haliscomenobacter
VIT® Microthrix
VIT® Nocardia
VIT® Nostocoida limicola II

Microscopic image: after analysis with gene probe technology, all living bacteria shine green and Nostocoida limicola II specifically shines red.
