In this course module, the basic elements of MIC control are being explained. This masterclass contains 7 lessons that will address the following topics:

  • Addresses microbial mechanisms relevant to MIC
  • Introduction into Measurement techniques to control MIC
  • Overview of different measurement methods for measurement of microbiological species and functions
  • Unraveling the domain of MMM-Microbiological Molecular Methods. Explaining the differences between measurement technologies such as qPCR and NGS (Next Generation Sequencing)
  • Explaining the elements of a high quality qPCR assay
  • Helps you to recognize whether a qPCR assay is of sufficient quality
  • Enables you to ask critical questions to an external laboratory about the quality of a qPCR assay
  • Explains the triangular approach of harvesting multiple datapoints for the failure analysis of MIC
  • We will show you the procedure of capturing a sea-water sample and analyse corrosion products with XRF technologies
  • Will show you the lab procedure for mineralogical measurements with XRD (X-ray Diffraction)

What is the economical impact of MIC in relation to other corrosion mechanisms. And how comes, that we have more attention for these microbial mechanisms than a few years ago?

What are relevant mechanisms? Is MIC just a one trick pony, where SRB’s are synonym for MIC? Or is there a wider variety of mechanisms?

And, how do you recognize this mechanism? Are there distinctive properties? And what are good ways of measuring?

The course is delivered in 7 video’s of each 15-20 minutes. The lessons contain a high information density, but still easy to understand and remember. High quality content, that is up to date. You can try it for free and subscribe to our introduction lesson.
