Eikelboom Type 021N/Thiothrix

Identification and quantification of the filamentous
sulfur bacteria Eikelboom Typo 021N and Thiothrix

Item Number: 01130003

Lab analysis: detection of filamentous bacteria

Identification and quantification of Eikelboom type 021N and Thiothrix-filaments with our VIT® 021N/Thiothrix test kit. Both parameters are reported. They act as indicator organisms in wastewater treatment plants for the occurrence of hydrogen sulfide respectively fouling processes.

The results are displayed according to the VIT® key. The report contains a significant photo documentation that visualises the filamentous bacteria in the wastewater sample.

Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Semi-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.


For an on-site analysis in your laboratory, order the test kit VIT® 021N/Thiothrix.
