NGS Characterizing Microbial Communities and Assessing MIC Threats

Unveiling Microbial Insights: The Power of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

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…

Characterizing Microbial Communities and Assessing Biodegradation Potential

NGS and QuantArray®-Chlor: Characterizing Microbial Communities and Assessing Biodegradation Potential

• A pilot study was conducted at a site where electron donor was injected into groundwater impacted by a mixture of chlorinated solvents.

• QuantArray®-Chlor and NGS provided complimentary evidence of both biotic and abiotic reductive dechlorination in response to the injection of the electron donor giving the client confidence in this remediation strategy expanding electron donor injection to the entire site.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) provides comprehensive identification of microorganisms present in a sample down to the genus and even species level.

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS): Characterization of Microbial Communities at a Pipeline Release

• At a petroleum pipeline release in a remote area Bio-Traps® and CENSUS® qPCR for BTEX catabolic functional genes proved stimulation of BTEX biodegradation in impacted groundwater and provided an additional line of evidence to support acceptance of an MNA management strategy at the site.

• Contaminant trends, geochemistry, CENSUS® qPCR, and NGS provided multiple lines of evidence supporting an MNA management strategy and avoiding the greater costs of enhanced remediation.
