Laboratory of Bioindication Method in Water-Wastewater Management

Laboratory of Bioindication Method in Water-Wastewater Management

The laboratory was established in 2009 and it was expanded in 2012 and 2017. The laboratory conducts scientific research, commercial research activities, as well as research supporting the education process within the scope of diploma theses – MSc and PhD.

The scope of activities of laboratory includes:

  • analysis of activated sludge and biofilm parameters according to technological, process as well as ecological and hydrobiological point of view,
  • studies on the processes conducted with activated sludge and biofilm using sequencing batch reactors with the volume of 70 dm3 (2 reactors) as well as reactors with scalable volume of chamber in range 1-10 dm3 (6 reactors with possibility of temperature stabilization in range 1-50 oC),
  • studies on species composition and community structures of activated sludge and biofilm conducted using optical microscopes with passing-thru light in bright and dark field of view as well as phase contrast; studies can be also conducted with stereoscopes and microscopes based on reflected light appropriate for evaluation properties of biofilm which develops on non-transparent substrates.
