VIT® Tepidimonas

Test kit for the rapid analysis of Tepidimonas


Item Number: 01110014

Detection of biofilm forming bacteria

The monitoring and systematic combat and avoidance of biofilm formation plays a major role in paper mills. Indicator organisms for early biofilm formation primarily are bacteria of the genus Tepidimonas and Cloacibacterium. With the detection kit VIT® Tepidimonas, these microorganisms can be detected directly on site - safely and reliably.

An ideal complement to our kit VIT® Cloacibacterium – detect both indicator organisms for biofilm formation in time.

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

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • biofilms (direct)
  • (process)water (direct)
  • isolates (direct)


The kit is the ideal complement to VIT® Cloacibacterium.

Also available as service: biofilm forming bacteria in paper mill cycles
