Identification and quantification of the filamentous bacteria Item Number: 01130007
Nostocoida limicola Typ II and Alysiosphaera in wastewater samples
Lab analysis: detection of filamentous bacteria
Identification and quantification of Gram-positive Nostocoida limicola type II as well as Gram-negative Alysiosphaera filaments with our VIT® Nostocoida limicola II test kit. The two pearl necklace-formed filaments are morphologically very similar so conventionally the distinction is not possible. Though specific gene probes typify and quantifiy them unequivocally.
The results are displayed according to the VIT® key. The report contains a significant photo documentation that visualises the filaments in the wastewater sample.
Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Which analysis is applied?
The 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, we recommend our test kit VIT® Nostocoida limicola II.
- specific detection of Nostocoida limicola type II and Alysiosphaera
- detection of living bacteria exclusively
- quantification of filaments even in dense sludge flocs
- highest specificity
