Chemical engineer Dave Tracy provides insights into this common question, and provides resources on how to build a testing routine that works for you.
Dave Tracey, LuminUltra’s Director of Strategic Sales Channels, sat down with Dr. Ian Pepper, Professor of Environmental Microbiology at the University of Arizona, to talk about how he’s taken LuminUltra’s microbial monitoring technology into a new and exciting application – soil microbiology. His career has focused on soil and water quality, and most recently soil… Read More
Water conservation will be among the most critical issues that mankind faces in the future, and nowhere has this been clearer than Cape Town, South Africa.
Unsurprisingly, when people are used to getting their information in a certain way, they naturally want to know how a new method will stack up against it. The mechanisms of culture-based techniques and ATP analyses are completely different, and in many ways, so are the results they produce. Microorganisms, by definition, can’t be seen… Read More
Water quality regulators do their best to set policies to ensure the public has access to safe water to drink in terms of microbiological cleanliness. Despite regulations that dictate routine water quality analyses in key areas within water distribution systems, the types of analyses that are mandated are somewhat limited, and as a result,… Read More
MYTH vs TRUTH: “If my disinfectant residual is always high enough, I don’t have to worry about microbes”.
Many feel that consistently holding their disinfectant concentrations where they want them keeps them out of trouble, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy.
Since our humble beginnings in 2003, we at LuminUltra have always been keenly interested in water quality trends in different parts of the world. We have tried to make a habit of running at least a few tests wherever we travel to see how water quality varies in different geographical locations, at hotels, convention… Read More
Biological wastewater can be a be complex testing environment, but also offers the greatest opportunities for cost savings and overall optimization.
After the popularity of our initial article focusing on “The 5 most common questions that we are asked“, this article picks up where it left off to cover additional common questions that are posed to us through discussions with our customers: 1. Can you use this to tell me how many CFU/mL I have?… Read More
The versatility of 2nd Generation ATP monitoring technology enables it to be applied to a wide range of situations involving many sample types in many industries, from anaerobic sludge to paint products to ultra-purified water. While each of these sample types have their own unique challenges, there are many questions that we are often asked… Read More
