Although great effort is put into prevention, its standard practice to presume that some lubricant will enter the environment. The ability to biodegrade and maintain low toxicity to organisms are key considerations in product development; especially for sensitive environments than could see a significant impact from the introduction of potentially hazardous liquids. For customers in the energy […]

For microbials, summer is a great time for growth and expansion. Microbes are especially challenging in the spring & summer for the fuel industry. Fuel and the systems where fuel is used, stored and transported can provide a nutrient rich environment for microorganisms. Fuel provides a great source of carbon and the environments in which […]
Of the more prominent challenges facing the construction industry are those related to deterioration of material and structures by actions of microorganisms. The process is loosely known as Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC), which belies an incredible range of processes occurring as a result of the growth of microorganism, principally bacteria, on our steel and concrete […]
Textiles are part of our everyday experience but little do we realize the amount of technology and application expertise that goes into providing their features and performance attributes, particularly formulating for the addition of antimicrobial performance.
Dust Mites Love Fungi As a microbial enthusiast, the interaction between humans and our unseen environment is fascinating. As part of our profession we are regularly challenged with issues related to the generic categories of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. But on occasion other classes of organisms such as small insects become important. […]
Elemental Analysis Supporting Microbial Product Development As part of the continuing commitment to our customer’s growing testing and development needs for antimicrobial and biodegradability testing, Situ Biosciences announces expanded elemental analysis capabilities.
Formaldehyde is the most basic form of aldehyde representing the class of reactive antimicrobials. Situ Biosciences – Microbial Test Experts Did you know? Formaldehyde and aldehydes can be volatile at room temperature leading to the odor commonly associated with preservation of tissue or tissue samples such as in laboratories, hospitals, and mortuaries.
Microbial ID by Genetic and Phenotype Analysis What is microbial genetic identification?
Microbial Product Testing 1.0 If you’re new to microbial testing, it can be confusing as to which test(s) are needed, necessary, or required. “Which test do I need?” – Is a seemingly simple question, but the reality is that the requirements for a particular product can be complex.
A Guide to Microbial Testing: Microbial Control vs Microbial Elimination For Additional Guidance: First Steps to Microbial Product Testing In antimicrobial systems or microbiology testing, confusion arises when a particular system is being evaluated since the acceptable concentration of microorganisms for any particular process can differ.
