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.

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.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.

In Ontario Lakes, Non-Native Bass Impact Native Fish

It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.
