Be in control with Inhome qPCR
In a lot of industrial production processes, microbiology plays a very important role. This can be either a positive or a negative consequence.
In our consultancy work, we regularly come across well-intentioned actions by clients that cause unintended reactions, such as the development of MIC (microbial corrosion). At first sight, these are often very logical actions which, unfortunately, can have major consequences. We have listed five of them for you. These experiences of others may help you to prevent similar problems.
What are biocides?
Biocides are chemicals that are used to suppress, combat or prevent harmful or unwanted organisms.
Biocides are used in many different places in the industry to monitor safety and quality.
Everybody is familiar with the phenomenon of corrosion. Corrosion is the degradation of materials (particularly metals) through electrochemical reactions.
In 2016, we started collaborating with the Canadian company OSP Microcheck. Due to this collaboration, we currently offer our services at three locations: Houston (USA), Calgary (Canada) and Groningen (The Netherlands). The big advantage for our customers in both the USA and Canada, is that samples no longer have to be shipped to the Netherlands. This saves time, reduces CO2- emission, and brings us closer to our customers.
