Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) costs the oil and gas industry billions of dollars each year.
Rapid Assessment of Fluid Toxicity is Critical To An Effective Drilling Muds Program
Modern Water’s Microtox® technology has been used extensively by drilling companies and their suppliers to test the toxicity of drilling muds and fluids.The innovative technology based on bioluminescence offers rapid toxicity screening and analysis.The test provides extremely accurate results and has been tested on over 2700 chemicals.
Modern Water’s Microtox technology assists drillers and their key suppliers in four areas.
Our innovative Quickcheck SRB test kit complies with ASTM D8243-19 and is easy to use, requires no expensive equipment and provides faster and more reliable results when compared to conventional culture tests. In an independent study done by an external lab, the QuickChek SRB performed as good as or better than both the well-known culture method and the more costly qPCR methods.
