3M™ Rapid Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) Detection Pouch

  • SRB Detection Pouch

    Sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) found in oilfield water systems can be a serious threat to productivity and profits. If left unmonitored and undetected, these microorganisms can cause serious damage to assets and infrastructure through microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), while greatly reducing flow by fouling and plugging pipes, pumps and other equipment. They can also sour a reservoir, requiring expensive remediation efforts.

    The sooner you know, the sooner you can act.

    Conventional SRB testing methods can take weeks to deliver results – giving SRBs more time to multiply and do damage. The 3M™ Rapid SRB Detection Pouch is a self-contained, thin-film culturing method designed to make field testing easy, accurate and – best of all – fast. Testing has shown our detection pouch can provide results in significantly less time than conventional methods. Light and compact, it fits easily in your toolkit or backpack for “go-anywhere” field or offshore portability.

    • Quantitative results as fast as one day, negative result confirmed in 5 days
    • Optimized anaerobic environment
    • Inoculate in seconds with no dilutions required
    • Small footprint
    • No glass or needles
