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.

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.

AS IF: North Carolina Biological Station Inspires Researchers and Artists to New Heights

Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.

Floating, Diving Robots in the Southern Ocean

The polar regions of the world have always a challenge for scientists to explore and study. Even logistics that are typically no more than passing concerns under other circumstances such as transportation become major problems during polar wintertime. Now, r esearchers are reporting on their use of hundreds of oceanic floats that are drifting and diving their way through the Southern Ocean, including under its ice, with surprising results. Happy robotic wanderers EM spoke with Dr. Alison Gray , assistant professor of physical oceanography at the University of Washington , to find out more about the work, the robots, and the significance of the findings in improving our understanding of the global climate and this poorly studied region.
