Quantitative analysis of ANAMMOX bacteria in sludge samplesItem Number: 01120008
Lab analysis of ANAMMOX bacteria in anaerobic reactors
Identification and quantification of bacteria which are responsible for the anaerobic ammonia oxidation process (ANAMMOX). This important group of wastewater bacteria enable the elimination of ammonia without cost intensive oxygen supply. The new process features many advantages compared to standard nitrification but implementing it is still ambitious. Thus specific monitoring of the ANAMMOX bacteria with specific gene probes offers reasonable support in process management. The ANAMMOX bacteria are identified as group directly in wastewater samples (including carrier material) and quantified as percentage of the living bacterial flora.
Significant photo documentations that visualize the ANAMMOX-bacteria in the sample material are prepared.
Qualitative or 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 fixate/stabilize your samples in the indicated manner before sending the samples to us.
This service is available as serviceplus.
For an on-site analysis, we recommend our test kit VIT® Anammox.
- specific identification of ANAMMOX bacteria
- quantification of ANAMMOX bacteria directly in sample
- detection of living bacteria exclusively
