Haliscomenobacter hydrossis

Identification and quantification of the filamentous bacteria
Haliscomenobacter hydrossis in sludge samples

Lab analysis: detection of filamentous bacteria

Identification and quantification of Haliscomenobacter hydrossis filaments with our VIT® Haliscomenobacter test kit. The thin filaments of Haliscomenobacter hydrossis are often not properly visible in the wastewater mixture and are thus conventionally underestimated. Particularly before and after combat activies, a control of the Haliscomenobacter-population with gene probes which detect only living bacteria is reasonable.

Results are displayed according to the VIT® key. The report contains a significant photo documentation that visualises the Haliscomenobacter-filaments 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.


For an on-site analysis, we recommend our test kit VIT® Haliscomenobacter
