Microbial Insights offers a full suite of petroleum hydrocarbon fingerprinting and compound CSIA for environmental forensics investigations

New Biosurfactant Assays Available at MI

  Ever thought about biosurfactants helping to enhance contaminant degradation? Want to utilize Microbially Enhanced Oil Recovery?  Now we can quantify many of the organisms known to have this capability!! During environmental cleanup, hydrophobic contaminants can become bound to soil particles making them difficult to remediate. To increase contaminant desorption, natural surfactants can be utilized in…


Novel MIC Biomarker Correlated to Severe Corrosion

  Discovery and Assay Development of the micH Gene, a Novel MIC Biomarker Despite the long-standing association between methanogens and microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of oil and gas pipelines, neither the type nor abundance of the detected methanogens was correlated with the perceived severity of corrosion. Recent combined efforts have resulted in the discovery and assay…
