  • Description

    Sulphate API Agar w/o Sodium Lactate is prepared according to the formulation described in the ‘American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice for detection of sulphate reducing bacteria. Sulphate-reducing bacteria cause corrosion of oil well systems resulting in perforations in the pipes. Sulphate-reducing bacteria convert sulphate to sulphide which with the ferrous ion gives black colour. The insoluble sulphide results in plugging.
