Method for the calorimetric examination of aquatic liquids
Summary:
A German centre for environmental research developed a method for the calorimetric examination of aquatic liquids as a fast and reliable determination of microbial contamination in tap and mineral water and in process water in food industry and pharmacy. The institution is looking for partners for commercial agreements with technical assistance and technical cooperation agreements.
Description:
The German Institution is one of the world´s leading research centres in the field of environmental research, enjoying high social recognition. It demonstrates ways in which a sustainable use of our natural resource base is possible for the benefit of both mankind and the environment.
A German centre developed now a method for the calorimetric examination of aquatic liquids as a fast and reliable determination of microbial contamination in tap and mineral water and in process water in food industry and pharmacy.
High-resolution calorimeters are used to continuously track the heat production of water samples mixed with complex or selective media. Dangerous bacterial contaminations are often indicated within a few hours. Timing of the first detectable signal or the first maximum in the heat signal allows for the quantification of the numbers of germs. The form of the thermal signal in dependency on the applied complex or selective media provides hints for the identification of the contaminating bacteria. The new approach is supported by recently developed ultra-sensitive, cost-effective, multichannel calorimeters. The main advantages of the invention are i) fast analysis time, ii) minimal manual labor, and iii) the possibility of automation.
The research centre is looking for partners for commercial agreements with technical assistance and technical cooperation agreements for validation and technology optimisation and for implementation in existing systems.

Advantages and Innovations:
Innovation
The conventional methods are based on the multiplication of the water microbes until metabolic end products are detectable or colonies are formed. This often needs several days. Molecular-biological identifications of individual strains are under development. However, contaminations with further microbes will not be noticed. Furthermore, these molecular-biological methods do not provide any information about the activity of the microbes.
Key benefits
·Evidence of bacterial microbes in a few hours
·Detection level much lower than the legal guide values / limits
·Chemicals used cost only a few cents
·Fully automatic recording and analysis of data
·Simultaneous measurement and analysis of many samples
·Correlation with microbes with relevance to hygiene
·Large potential for improving the existing performance parameters
