Protecting our waterways: how to leverage Microbial Source Tracking for fecal contamination management

Fecal contamination can affect your waterways, resulting in fines, reputational damage, health threats and economic losses from closures. How can you be confident in solving your problem if you’re not sure of the source?

Identify environmental pollution

Microbial source tracking for fecal contamination

Fecal bacteria in water sources are a common problem that can pose a serious health risk for the public, as well as economic losses for industries relying on coastal waters. Confirm the origin of nutrient and fecal pollution through our molecular testing solutions.

We offer validated tests for the detection of pollution from multiple sources, including human and:

  • Birds
  • Geese
  • Gulls
  • Ruminants (deer, elk, goats, sheep)
  • Beavers
Assess public health risks

Pathogen testing for viruses and bacteria

Test and analyze water, soil, surfaces, and air to assess wide-ranging risks and design targeted solutions for bacteria (Legionella, E. coli, Salmonella, etc.) and viruses. We can provide genetic evidence of the presence of pathogenic viruses and bacteria in your samples.

Our sensitive analyses for the detection and quantification of common pathogens include:

  • SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19
  • Adenovirus
  • Rotavirus
  • Norovirus
  • Enterovirus
  • Legionella
  • Salmonella
  • Campylobacter
  • E. coli
  • Enterococcus Staphylococcus aureus
Manage and protect your assets

Prevent microbiologically influenced corrosion

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) can cause serious equipment degradation and failure, process interruptions, safety hazards, and product quality issues.

Safeguard your operations and mitigate risks by identifying and quantifying specific microbiological threats in your system, such as sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB).

Identify the presence of superbugs

Find evidence of antimicrobial resistance

Microorganisms that develop antimicrobial resistance are often referred to as “superbugs.” We can detect genetic evidence for resistance to methicillin and tetracycline in air, soil, and water samples.

Why choose LuminUltra’s mail-in lab services?

We can employ a range of techniques — including next generation sequencing (NGS), droplet digital PCR (ddPCR), RT-qPCR and qPCR — to identify and quantify the microbial composition of your samples to the level of granularity that you require. Fast, simple and trusted.
