Do the BART™ Test, Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria test vials contain sulfate?
Summary
BART™ Test, Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria test vial contents
Answer
The BART™ Test, Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria (SRB), pk/9 and pk/27 (Product # 2432409 and 2432427) test vials contain both sulfate and sulfur-containing proteins. These compounds are added to the test vials so that the bacteria can use either or both of them. Approximately 80% of the hydrogen sulfide generated during the test comes from the proteins.
