LET OUR EXPERTSANALYZE YOUR WATER OR BIOFILM SAMPLES FOR YOU

Lab Technician - Metagenomic Image

FAST. CONVENIENT. POWERFUL.

Sometimes on-site testing isn't possible or additional advanced testing options such as metagenomic analysis are desired.  With InstantLabs' laboratory services, we give you easy and affordable access to the latest DNA-based analysis technologies and our years of experience in working with complex industrial samples.  We do everything for you from extracting DNA to analysis by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction qPCR) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) to generating a comprehensive and action-oriented report.  You just provide the samples.

WE USE DNA TECHNOLOGYTO IDENTIFY VIRTUALLY 100% OF DAMAGE-CAUSING MICROBES

Off-Site-Icon-4

Know for Sure

See the ratios of microbes present in your system that are associated with different business impacts including biocorrosion, biofilm formation, biofouling, H2S production, etc.  Use this data to accurately assess potential issues and devise optimized treatment programs.

Off-Site-Icon-2

Enhanced Monitoring

Monitor your system over the long-term by tracking changes in microbial populations over time.  Also monitor differences across different sampling points to determine problems hot spots.

Off-Site-Icon-3

Greater Insight

Precisely understand how different system factors such as chemicals, temperature, and other system parameters affect microbial ratios and concentrations over time.

Off-Site-Icon-1

More Effective Treatment

Better monitor biocide treatments by seeing the effects of the treatment on different microbial populations so that treatment parameters can be continually adjusted to ensure ongoing success.

THE SAMPLE ANALYSIS PROCESS

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-3

    You send us your water or biofilm samples using one of our sample collection kits.

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-2

    Our scientists extract DNA using a proprietary method developed and optimized for industrial samples.

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-4

    qPCR Analysis is preformed on the samples to quantitate Total Prokaryote (Bacteria + Archeae) as well as other important metabolic groups (i.e. Sulfate Reducing Bacteria).

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-5

    You receive an email with a link to your results in 48-72 hours.  Start using this data immediately to make treatment decisions.

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-1

    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) 16s rRNA metagenomic analysis is performed to identify virtually 100% of the microorganisms present in each sample. Each organism is categorized into industrially relevant metabolic groups.

  • Off-Site-Deep-Icon-6

    You receive an email with a link to your results. We provide a convenient and interactive visual aid to understanding your results and identifying problems.
