VIT® Anammox

Test kit for the rapid and quantitative analysis of the bacteria
responsible for the anaerobic ammonia oxidation process

Item Number: 01110016

Detection of anammox bacteria

Our test kit VIT® Anammox allows identification, quantification and visualisation of bacteria which are responsible for the anaerobic ammonia oxidation process (Anammox). The Anammox bacteria are detected directly within wastewater samples and quantified using the accompanying VIT® key. Additionally, the bacteria are quantified as percentage share of all viable bacteria in the sample.

VIT® Anammox is well suited to support the start-up phase of the Anammox process and in well-established processes the kit is used for continuous monitoring of the important populations.

The analysis is easy to conduct – only few minutes hands-on time. VIT® analysis is directly made on an aliquot of the sample material. The results are provided within 3 hours. Analysis is performed by using a fluorescence microscope. All essential consumables required for analysis are contained in the kit. Package size: 25 analyses.

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • wastewater samples
  • sludge of carrier material


You want to send us your samples for analysis? No problem with Anammox analysis.

We also are able to provide you with complete population profiling of anaerobic reactors.

Identical microscopic image after VIT® analysis: phase contrast, all living bacteria shine green, Anammox bacteria specifically red.
