MDG’s Microbiologist II, Alemayehu Dasho, is a familiar face in the lab. From working on samples to presenting his finding to the team he does it all with a smile.
What drew you to Microbial Discovery Group?
I used to work in a veterinary clinic where I had a chance to treat animals with antibiotics for bacterial-related infectious diseases. After treatment, many animals have been exposed to digestion-related problems because
Typically, one of the first questions a contract fermentation customer will ask us is how quickly we can get them to economical commercial production. From our years of experience, we commonly find that if the customer can get 2 Billion CFU/ml (2B) in a standard media such as Trypticase Soy Broth (TSB) or Nutrient Broth (NB), we tend to be able to get them to commercial production in 8-12 weeks.
However, if the customer is in the 107 or 108
If you’re in the business of keeping your customers' kitchens running safe and clean, you’re aware of the impact cooking oil can have over time on drains and pipes. A lot of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) can build up in systems like grease traps, sewage systems and industrial systems. Eventually, the FOG from both commercial and residential food preparation can accumulate in pipes and lead to major issues like sewer overflows, problems at
Jenna Trusso, Industrial & Institutional Sales Manager, is always ready to offer a helping hand. We recently sat down with the head of our Feed Clean Save program to learn more about how it has grown and what's planned for the future
What is the MDG Feed Clean Save Committee?
MDG’s vision is to Feed, Clean and Save the World. While our products do that each and every day, our employees also like to extend efforts locally through
Franklin, WI - Microbial Discovery Group (MDG), a leading Bacillus fermentation company, announced the newest addition to their Biotifx® wastewater treatment line – 40B Water Soluble Packets.
The Biotifx 40B Water Soluble Packet is a highly concentrated, microbial treatment for lagoons and other large wastewater systems. The powder is pre-measured and the packaging dissolves in water, making it easy for operators to apply.
Could you benefit from higher income per sales hour? Lower hours spent per close? Higher close rates?
This is what’s possible when you distribute quality, science-backed bioaugmentation solutions that are paired with an easy-to-understand, product education program for your sales team.
Premium Solutions + Effective Training = Success
At MDG, we’ve taken the time to work with the scientific community to not only understand what’s
In your search for environmentally friendly cleaning ingredients, you’ve likely come across the term ‘biosurfactants’. Do you know what they are – and what they do in bio-enzymatic cleaners? Read on to become armed with the knowledge you need to make informed formulation decisions.
What is a Biosurfactant?
A biosurfactant is a biologically derived substance that helps reduce the surface tension of a liquid in which it’s
Earlier in this article series, we touched on how bioaugmentation treatments for wastewater have been around for 50+ years to help resolve toxic upsets. We also explored how Bacillus, a certain genus of bacteria that can be used in microbial treatments, are resilient to oxidizers.
Today, we’ll examine how Bacillus are resistant to another powerful but non-oxidizing anti-microbial: Quats.
What are Quats?
Quaternary ammonium compounds
When distributors participate in our Biotifx® program, they become armed with the knowledge and confidence they need to support their customers with superior microbial wastewater treatments – even during the winter months. The program includes onsite training, straightforward product application guides and tools, even an on-site technical service rep if/whenever needed. And cool products too.
Help Improve Cold Weather Performance
Before we walk through how to help your customers optimize their WAS holding systems, it's important to understand how they work.
How does a WAS Holding System work?
Waste Activated Sludge (WAS) holding systems are a common part of operations in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). A WAS holding system, typically in the form of a sludge tank or lagoon, holds sludge after it has been wasted or removed from a clarifier. WAS systems may have
