Site managers now have a broad spectrum of molecular biological tools (MBTs) at their disposal to aid in site assessment, remedy selection and performance monitoring.

While each MBT can provide valuable information, selecting the most appropriate and cost-effective technology to best answer site-specific questions and guide site management decisions is not always straightforward.

Moreover, with units such as cells/mL, 13C enriched cells/bd, or per mil (‰) evaluating the results from MBTs including qPCR may seem less intuitive than traditional chemical and geochemical data.

The case studies present actual examples of:

  • Common site management questions that need to be addressed
  • Selection of the appropriate MBT
  • Real-world interpretation of the MBT results and the corresponding site management decisions
