A municipal wastewater treatment plant planning to carry out an expensive capital upgrade. This upgrade would improve treatment performance and bring the plant into compliance but was extremely expensive. Before investing money into the project, the plant researched if alternative solutions to the upgrade could be found.
A solution explored was our GeneCount® Services. The wastewater treatment plant took six samples and sent them to us as part of our mail-in NGS service. These samples were from different locations throughout the treatment facility.
With their results in two weeks, the treatment plant made their decision on whether to pursue capital upgrades or not. Get all the details on in the Mitigating Capital Upgrades to a Wastewater Treatment Plant Using DNA Sequencing case study!
