In this webinar are pleased to have as a special guest speaker Dora Taggart, President of Microbial Insights, Inc. (MI). Her presentation includes a series of case studies that demonstrate how molecular biological tools (MBTs) such as QuantArray® and compound specific isotope analysis (CSIA) provided actionable data that directly impacted site management decisions.
This webinar addresses how:
- QuantArray®-Chlor is used to accurately quantify halorespiring bacteria and functional genes in conjunction with PlumeStop® and enhanced anaerobic bioremediation
- CSIA is employed to conclusively demonstrate contaminant degradation
- MBTs were used to evaluate contaminant degradation at a chlorinated solvent impacted site
