More info

Sulphate reducing bacteria (SRB) is a bacteria that can obtain energy by oxidising organic compounds / molecular hydrogen and reducing sulfate to hydrogen sulfide. In essence, this bacteria 'breathes' sulfate.

Sulphate reducing bacteria are anaerobic organisms that cause corrosion and spoilage in multiple industries. The bacteria can cause particular damage to oil pipelines and metal parts.

SRB:

Survives in oxygen depleted / oxygen free environments
Corrodes at a very fast rate
Reduces sulfate and creates hydrogen sulfide
Resultant hydrogen sulfide gives off a foul ‘rotten egg’ odour
Other signs of its presence in water is a change in colour (to black)
Major cause of microbial influenced corrosion

Our SRB tests will check for signs of this bacteria by using a culture gel. 

It comes in a pack size of 10 slides / tests per box (minimum order of 10 boxes). 

How to use the SRB Test

  1. Check that the tube is free from any growth, open and stand upright.
  2. Using forceps, take a capillary tube (provided) and dip into the sample.
  3. Blot the end of the capillary onto a clean sheet of paper to empty the tube.
  4. Push the capillary down into the gel in the tube and replace the cap
  5. Label the tube and incubate at 30-35 degrees c for a minimum of 24 hours.
  6. Compare the incubated tube to the results chart included.

Severe infections will normally show results within 24 hours, whilst a slight infection may take up to 48 hours to develop.

A comparison chart is included so you can easily compare your results.
