Basic Microscopy for Water & WastewaterOperators

Description

This one-of-a-kind workshop was written to help water/wastewater operators obtain better process control through microscopic examination of colonies, countings, mixed liquors and other waste streams. Let's start with the basics... microscope types & features then benefits. Let's define the microscope selection process... compare and contrast... better features usually translates to better results; not all the time. Explore cost factors. Let's talk sampling, petri dish preps, slide preparation, maintenance, staining techniques, and actual sample examination. Finally, organism class identification, colony counting, and how does the presence, absence, mobility, number of various classes of organisms translates to wastewater process control. Through superb computer slides and graphics, visual demonstrations, hands-on, plus a lively interactive verbal presentation, even the most advanced operator will find this program skill enhancing.

Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this program, operators should be able to:

  • Identify differences and applications for the two common types of microscopes
  • Knowing that nearly all microscopes are for clinical and other uses, operators should be able to determine best features and applications for their particular need
  • Know what critical information can be obtained from a common microscopic examination for both a water or wastewater application.
