Unveiling Microbial Insights: The Power of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Today, we’re diving into the realm of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), a cutting-edge technique that has revolutionized our understanding of microbial communities. NGS is transforming the field of microbiology and shedding light on intricate processes like Environmental Remediation (ER) and Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC). NGS…
MI is hosting a workshop on “Optimizing Microbial Corrosion Mitigation through Applied Molecular Microbiology” in Houston, TX on April 19, 2023.
MIC Industry Workshop & Training Course in Turkey
May 29 – June 2, 2023, Duzce Turkey
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…
Severe corrosion of carbon steel in oil field produced water can be linked to methanogenic archaea containing a special type of NiFe hydrogenase.
– QuantArray®-MIC was performed on swab samples from internally pitted and adjacent non-pitted areas of pipeline components as part of a multiple lines of evidence approach to evaluate microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).
– This case study shows how NGS revealed diverse microbial communities and the presence of microbial groups commonly implicated in MIC, including SRB, methanogens and acetogens.
