Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Is this product reuseable ?
No, the test cannot be reused. The Blue-Green Algae BART test includes the bottle, geo-cloth and dehydrated nutrients. If present, the algae will grow on the cloth inside the sample bottle and using the dehydrated nutrients. One used, the test should be safely disposed of with a dedicated microwave or an autoclave.
How long should I observe my BART test?
The test should be observed a minimum of 3 times a week for 24 days.
How can I determine the type of bacteria growing?
In the documents tab, there is a document that shows the advanced test information. The amount of growth and color determines the type of bacteria growing. Cyanobacteria is indicated by dark-green, blue-green, or black growths at the water line.
How can I determine the population?
The potential algae population can be determined by the number of days it takes to react. Under the documents tab, the pdf explains the determination for each number of days. The quicker the reaction, the higher the potential population.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Cellular Data Buoy Supports Lake Erie Algae Research, Public Outreach

Scientists at Ohio State University are at the fore of the fight against harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. In fact, they deployed a new cellular data buoy off the shore of Gibraltar Island in 2014, months before the Toledo Water Crisis spurred a boom in monitoring platforms around the lake. That was in part because researchers at the university’s Stone Laboratory, backed by Ohio Sea Grant and housed on Gibraltar, had been seeing a resurgence of blooms in the lake long before international attention came around following the crisis. There was an opportunity, they saw, to continue advancing the mission of research, education and outreach on Lake Erie. The cellular data buoy complimented that in a great way.
