Visualizing the Effectiveness of Activated Sludge

Tracking movement over time

The method to purify domestic wastewater or factory water by making aerobic microbes and other bacteria process organic matter in the water is called the “activated sludge method.”
The efficiency of this activated sludge method differs greatly depending on various environmental conditions such as the amount of oxygen supply for microbes to maintain their activity, the quantitative balance control between the activated sludge and the contaminants, and the water temperature adjustment.

Using the All-in-One Fluorescence Microscope BZ-X800

  • By visualizing microbes and bacteria with fluorescence dyeing upon environment confirmation, you can observe, for example, the amount of microbes or bacteria, their balance, and their change over time.
  • Fluorescence observation can be performed easily by anyone because no darkroom is necessary.
  • Clearer visualized conditions can be used as persuasive reference materials for third parties.
