Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) Monitoring Solutions


Solve microbial issues on the spot

With real-time, accurate quantification of total bioburden, your team can pinpoint a problem area within a system, apply treatment, and quantify the efficacy of this treatment all within the same day – compared to days or weeks with traditional methods.

Microbiological threats are best addressed in their early stages of growth. By making LuminUltra part of your overall solution, biological growth can be minimized at all key points to pre-emptively avoid biofilm formation and the serious problems that arise from it. Routine microbial testing can mitigate infrastructure degradation, reduce chemical treatment costs and avoid severe economic and health and safety threats to industries.
