  • Microbes Run the World

    Microbes run the world. They are the governing agents behind the conversion of key elements into vital biological forms. They remove toxins from their environments, and protect us from disease-causing organisms. Microbes do not, however, go to battle alone. Microbe armies live in complex communities that follow intricate processes and interactions to ensure environmental stability. Until ...

  • Wastewater Monitoring Series, Part 2: The Use of 2nd Generation ATP Monitoring Systems

    In October, we featured Part I of a three-part series on "Getting a Handle on Living Biomass in Wastewater Treatment." Here, we present Part II of the series which focuses on a revolutionary breakthrough technology that uses Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) for the measurement of total microbiological content in a given sample. Through years of successful research, development, and field application, ...

  • 3 things that you can learn on the first day of ATP testing at your wastewater plant

    Of all the applications that LuminUltra works with, biological wastewater may be the most complex but also offers the greatest opportunities for cost savings and overall optimization. The greatest savings tend to come through process optimization once long-term data trends have been established but the following is a list of opportunities that present themselves immediately upon starting to ...

  • Efficacy of measuring cellular ATP levels to determine the inactivation of pulsed UV treated Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts suspended in water

    This constitutes the first study to report on the use of a novel approach to determine inactivation in PUV-irradiated Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts suspended in water based on the measurement of cellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) concentration. This study also compares the efficiency of a novel ATP assay to that of using the combined in vitro HCT-8 cell culture – ...

  • Things You Should Know about Your Reusable Water Bottle

    Reusable water bottles are everywhere; on office desks, in gym bags, and in kids’ backpacks. And while it’s inexpensive, environmentally friendly, and incredibly convenient to stop by any tap or fountain for a quick refill, there are a few things to remember about these reusable bottles. Actually, there are a few things to remember about microorganisms: many of them love warmth, ...

  • Does your cooling tower have a biofouling problem?

    What’s growing in your tower? It’s important to be able to identify microbial biofouling in the industrial cooling systems that you treat. We know that biofouling is a bad thing … reducing the heat transfer performance of a cooling system, as well as causing microbially induced corrosion, harboring pathogens, and accumulating scale deposits. All these problems can ...
