Every industry we service has different microbiological needs, and all these industries will utilize a biocide for microbiological control. Thus, the most critical factor affecting biocide performance is the ability to control the microorganisms causing biodeterioration.

Each class of biocide molecule has a killing action, based on its chemistry, which is either quick or slow-acting and will work versus a broad or narrow spectrum of microorganisms. Each biocide will be more or less effective against specific microorganisms and in some cases will be ineffective at high dosages.

In order to approximate how a biocide will perform in the field, it is first necessary to run laboratory tests under conditions that
