ORVIdetect – microbial analyses

qPCR analyse samples to determine dechlorinating bacteriaOrder your ORVIdetect q-PCR analyses to answer the following questions:
• Are the right bacteria for enhanced reductive remediation naturally present on my site?
• Does the number of specific bacteria increase as a result of degradation and/or stimulation by augmentation?
• Did the Augmented biomass end up in right location?
• Is the remediation progressing as planned?

Our microbial quantifications make use of the qPCR technique , in which micro-organisms are being detected and quantified based on their genetic material (DNA).

We offer the following ORVIdetect q-PCR Analyses

Analysis Target Organism/gene For the Degradation of…
ORVIdetect DHC Dehalococcoides spp. Chlorinated ethenes such as PER, TRI cis-DCE and VC
ORVIdetect VC Vinylchloride reductase Vinylchloride (VC)
ORVIdetect DHB Dehalobacter spp. Chlorinated methanes (e.g. chloroform) and chlorinated ethanes (1,1,1-TCA)
ORVIdetect BAC Total Bacteria Broad Screening of all bacterial Biomass

Pre-ordering your analyses for the coming months means we can give you a discount on analysis costs. Contact us for further details
When you order 10 analyses or more, consider pre-ordering.

After you have ordered analyses, we will send you the appropriate sampling material, which you can then use to sample your groundwater. The samplebottles contain a preservative so that the samples do not have to be cooled during transport. Within five workdays after we recieve the samples you will get a digital certificate containing the analysis results.
