Question
Does Hach have a way to measure bacterial iron or Iron-related bacteria?
Summary
Measuring bacterial iron or iron-related bacteria
Answer
Yes, the IRB BART (catalog number 2432309 or 2432327) will measure iron-related bacterial populations (oxidizing, reducing, and accumulating strains). A chart included with the tester describes what reactions to look for. The approximate bacterial population in cfu/mL (colony forming units per milliliter of sample) can be estimated from the number of days it takes before a reaction appears.
