Deterioration and corrosion due to microorganisms drive a worldwide market for microbial control that is worth billions of dollars annually. Join our workshop to discover the fundamentals of microbiologically induced corrosion and its prevention.
Sample sterilization is a crucial step in microbially induced corrosion (MIC) research that is usually overlooked. In this regard, metal sterilization procedures should not alter the surface nor affect the inherent susceptibility of the metal to corrosion while adequately deactivating biological activity. So, are all sterilization methods the same? Do they alter the corrosion response of the sample being investigated?
