VIT® Haliscomenobacter

Test kit for rapid analysis and quantification of the
filamentous bacteria Haliscomenobacter hydrossis


Item Number: 01110006

Detection of filamentous bacteria

VIT® Haliscomenobacter specifically detects Haliscomenobacter hydrossis bacteria directly within your wastewater sample. The gram-negative filament Haliscomenobacter hydrossis is considered causing bulking and floating sludge as well as foaming in biological wastewater treatment. By means of our VIT® key, contained bacteria can be quantified. Changes within one population can thus be monitored continuously.

By integrating our product into an early warning system you will save a considerable amount of chemicals.

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.
