Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion

Fast, accurate insight

Understand your risk with a complete testing portfolio

Managing MIC means understanding the microbial community within your system. LuminUltra’s solutions allow you to identify and quantify potential MIC threats and optimize biocide programs. From daily monitoring that quantifies bio-burden in real-time, to targeted identification of MIC-causing microbes, we can help you prevent system failures and extend the life of your infrastructure.

Trust a company with decades of experience in oil & gas, marine transportation and manufacturing. Our solutions can be used together as a complete toolkit to address the impacts of microbiology.  

Fast assessment of microbial activity

Routine testing with 2nd Generation ATP®

Understand the total active bioburden in a sample with a simple, fast, in-field test that gives quantifiable results and insight into the microbial growth of a system. Designed for routine monitoring, our 2nd Generation ATP® technology delivers accurate results within 5 minutes (in pg ATP/ unit of measurement).
