USD Price: $131.00

BART biodetectors are excellent diagnostic tools to help identify the presence and activity of various bacteria.

Nitrifying bacteria recycle organic nitrogenous materials from ammonium (the endpoint for the decomposition of proteins) to nitrates. In water, aggressive nitrifiers can produce high concentrations of nitrates. Nitrates in water can be a potential health risk. Aggressive nitrifying bacteria in waters may indicate the latter stages of aerobic degradation of nitrogen-rich organic matter. This can indicate that the water may have been polluted by nitrogen-rich organics from sources such as compromised septic tanks, sewage systems, industrial and hazardous waste sites and is undergoing an aerobic form of degradation.

  • Simple yet effective method for monitoring the population size and/or activity of specific groups of bacteria
  • Easy to use, requiring no elaborate or costly equipment and no specialized training
  • Effective and affordable tests are easy to interpret and can be performed at room temperature in virtually any environment
