Profiling of the individual nitrifying bacteria populations

Detailed, quantitative profiling of ammonia- and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria populations in wastewater / sludge samples

Product Number: 01120002

Lab analysis - Nitrifying bacteria profile in wastewater samples

Exact profiling of the individual ammonia- and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria populations in wastewater samples (biofilms and carrier material, too). Analysis is carried out using a set of genus- and species-specific gene probes for the different bacteria. In total 11 different populations are analyzed. Table of identified species is available on request.

Per each population, results are given as percentage of the overall living bacterial flora. This service is ideal for comparing the populations of nitrifying bacteria in different wastewater treatment plants e. g. for planning inoculation procedures after failures or breakdowns of nitrification processes.

The report includes an informative photo documentation that visualizes the individual populations of nitrifying bacteria in the sample material.

Qualitative or quantitative detection?
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 also available as serviceplus.

 

Alternatively, Nitri-VIT® Rapid analysis is also available.

For a quick analysis directly on-site, choose our test kit Nitri-VIT®
