Biological Activity Reaction (BART) Test for Iron Related Bacteria

Making a definitive diagnosis as to the presence of iron-related bacteria within a water well, pipeline etc. can be difficult. Which is why Geoquip is proud to offer a patented Biological Activity Reaction (BART) Test kit specifically designed to detect the presence of iron-reducing bacteria.

What is Iron Related Bacteria?

Iron related bacteria (IRB) is a naturally occurring bacteria that likely originated from within the aquifer that feeds your water well. In most instances, IRB will attach itself to the surface of a well where it will continue to grow. A common by-product of this growth is bio-fouling, or IRB bio-fouling, a red to orange slime-like material that can build up and foul the internals of your pump, the perforations of your water well, and can lead to increases in energy costs and decreases in well performance.

Once positively identified, BoreSaver Ultra C may be applied to your water well to eliminate iron-related bacteria biofouling and prevent it from re-occurring.

Easy To Use

Conducting a test is easy: Simply collect a water sample from the well in question and pour it into the BART testing vial. Observe the vial for a period of eight days. The IRB Biological Activity Reaction (BART) test will display a positive result when there is foam produced and/or a brown ring develops as a ring around the interior vial of the testing tube.

Easy to Interpret

Depending on how quickly a reaction is observed, this provides you with an indication of the bacterial count within the water sample. For example, if a reaction is observed within one day of starting the test, the bacteria count is high with a reading equal to, or greater than, 570,000 CFU/ml (colony-forming unit). Additionally, if no reaction is seen within 6 days, the bacteria count is equal to 500 CFU/ml. A negative test has no brown color, no color, and no clouding within 8 days.

Testing Instructions

The Iron Related Bacteria Biological Activity Reaction (BART) Test kit includes an easy to decipher chart that can be used for determining the bacterial count of your sample.
