BART (Biological Activity Reaction Test) tester for iron-related bacteria. 

Simple to use, no incubator required. Remove the cap from the BART tester, add your sample, allow to incubate in a room temperature location, and look for a reaction. 

Observe daily for 8 days. If iron bacteria is present, a brown film will develop. 

A chart included with the tester describes what reactions to look for.

The approximate baterial 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.

Simple yet effective method for monitoring the population size and/or activity of specific groups of bacteria

Easy to use, requiring no elaborate or costly equipment and no specialized training

Effective and affordable tests are easy to interpret and can be performed at room temperature in virtually any environment

BART biodetectors are excellent diagnostic tools to help identify the presence of process disruptors, such as iron-reducing bacteria (IRB) that could be eating your pipes. An important agent involved in biofouling, IRB can cause corrosion, clogging, fouling, and hygiene risk.
