Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Biology, Chemistry and Toxicology Departments have found the Microtox technology useful over the years to perform studies and do research.
- Treatment plant pilot studies
- Biocide comparative studies
- AnalysisStream Testing
- Sediment Analysis
- River Testing
- Oil Spill Analysis
- Ecotoxicity Studies
- Trace metals speciation studies
- Bench-top heavy metals analysis
- Metal removals system pilot studies
The rapid toxicity analysis is preferred over the traditional bioassay testing for both savings of time and costs. The traditional test using live species requires a large space for tanks to maintain the species and is not always a valid option for research or academic labs. Using Microtox offers results in 30-40 minutes using a freeze dried bacteria and requires a small area on the bench top. Microtox provides high correlation with traditional bioassays and high reproducibility. Over 700 peer reviewed papers are available from research and academic facilities.
