Test kit for rapid analysis and quantification of filamentous bacteriaItem Number: 01110009
Detection of nocardioform actinomycetes in wastewater
VIT® Nocardia specifically detects nocardioform Actinomycetes directly within your activated sludge sample. Branch growing, gram-positive filaments and single cells such as Nocardia, Gordona, Rhodococcus, Skermania and Tsukamurella are various genera of Nocardioform Actinomycetes. These bacteria are considered primary cause to floating sludge and scum forming in many wastewater treatment plants. 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.
