kit QG21S for Paint, liquid polymers and chemical fluid


ATP 2G rapid microbiological analysis kit
for paints and liquid polymers

The QG21S™ kit is recommended for high-viscosity chemical fluids containing a high concentration of polymerizable organic matter, such as paint, glue, resins, liquid polymers, primers, coatings, etc. The kit determines the precise amount of extracellular ATP and total ATP (measuring total ATP only is also an option - QG21-St 2G Refill kit). These values can be used to calculate:

• the amount of intracellular ATP (in pg/mL) to determine the number of viable micro-organisms (in EM/mL). Learn more

the Biomass Stress Index™ (BSI) for evaluating the cell death or level of physiological stress within a microbial population after physical or chemical treatment. Learn more
