qPCR field kit-available primers, targets and biomarkers for MIC

MTEST qPCR is an advanced DNA based measurement device, specifically designed to quantify microbial processes related to the degradation of metals.

Although not extensive, we have the following list of primer assays available*.

General bacteria Methanogenic Archaea (micH)
General Archaea Sulphate reducing bacteria (micC)

SRB (targeting the dsr gene)

Iron reducers

Sulphur oxidizing bacteria

Iron oxidizers


*These primers assays have gone through an validation process and are suitable for monitoring purposes. We have a more extensive list of primers available that are intended of R&D purposes only
