Details

Hach's Total Bacteria Media Set saves time and labor costs with ready to use MPN tubes, with minimal training requirements.

 

In as little as 45 minutes, ToxTrak allows you to evaluate toxicity in a sample. Applicable to both drinking water and wastewater, ToxTrak measures and compares the toxicity of a sample to a baseline using either indigenous biomass or stock bacteria cultures.

 

Toxicity is monitored using several methods, such as growth, specific enzyme activity, bioluminescence, and respiration. These methods may require lengthy incubation times, centrifugation, solvent extraction, laborious colony counting procedures, and expensive equipment. With the ToxTrak Toxicity Test, a simple colorimetric method is used to determine the inhibitory effects of a waste stream on bacteria. With a photometer, you can monitor large numbers of samples quickly and inexpensively.

 

Cut costs in your laboratory by using ToxTrak to screen for potentially toxic influents and effluents. Or use it to identify dilutions for long-term bioassays. Long-term bioassays can require two to seven days to complete and are costly to perform.

 

ToxTrak is an inexpensive alternative that has results comparable to respirometric methods measuring dissolved oxygen consumption. ToxTrak can be used to screen influent and effluent and/or process waters. ToxTrak is also a useful tool for evaluating fluctuations in drinking water quality caused by intentional or accidental contamination.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
