LuminUltra Biofilm - Model DSA™ - Deposit and Surface Analysis Test Kit
Are you experiencing premature equipment failure due to microbial-influenced corrosion? By forming and populating biofilms on pipe walls and surfaces, microorganisms can survive biocide treatment and accelerate corrosion. Monitoring biofilm development using LuminUltra Biofilm (DSA™ Test Kit) can be used to manage chemical treatment to microbial build-up. This test kit is designed for the measurement of total microorganisms present on surfaces or in deposits including corrosion products and slimes. When coupled with other LuminUltra Test Kits , the user can characterize the level of microbial growth in both the bulk fluid as well as the contacting surface.
The LuminUltra Biofilm Test Kit is also unique in its effectiveness to quantify the amount of microbiological activity in biologically active filters (BAF) in drinking water pre-treatment. Conventional microbiological enumeration techniques struggle with quantifying colonizing cells in these filters whereas the LuminUltra Biofilm Test Kit obtains a direct measurement in minutes!
LuminUltra's test kits contain all of the consumable materials required to run their specified number of tests (Defined by the last 2 or 3 digits of the product code). To use these test kits, LuminUltra recommends one of the following equipment bundles:
- Field Kit & Luminometer (EQP-PAC): Field Case, Micropipettors, Kikkoman Lumitester.
- Bench Materials & Luminometer (EQP-BTM): Micropipettors, Kikkoman Lumitester, Test Tube Racks.
- Kikkoman Lumitester TM C-110 (EQP-LUK): Kikkoman Lumitester luminometer & accessories.
NOTE: LuminUltra’s test kits can be used with the majority of photomultiplier tube–based luminometers. Contact LuminUltra to confirm compatibility of your luminometer.
LuminUltra is sensitive to the needs of each individual customer. Our expert staff can consult with you to determine the best means by which the data collected from our test kits can be integrated into your existing data management practices. We have multiple software platforms and can even assist you to integrate ATP data directly into existing control systems, process historians, and data archives.
Getting started with DSA is easier with direct training. LuminUltra can supply you with on-site auditing and training services, web-based training, and one-on-one consultation to get your process improvement program off the ground.
- Results available in 5 minutes.
- Includes all reagents and disposables needed to analyze sessile build-ups in the form of swabbed surfaces, weighed deposits, or biofilm collection devices (coupons) which can all be tested with ease.
- All reagents are stable for at least one year.
Reliable data requires reliable equipment. LuminUltra’s flagship PhotonMaster™ is a purpose-built, robust, field-ready and low-cost luminometer specifically designed and optimized for LuminUltra’s patented line of 2nd Generation ATP test kits. Our goal was to reduce equipment costs for our customers, but we didn’t stop there.
As the world’s first USB-powered and operated commercial-grade luminometer, the PhotonMaster has been designed to shield against the elements and potential interferences while working in typical field conditions. No need to worry about batteries or power cords; the PhotonMaster uses as little power as a typical computer mouse.
