Quite simply, our lab services help you understand your water resource better. Using our laboratory services, we can better characterize the problems you might be facing in your water resource, and better prescribe a solution to meet your needs. The end goal of our work in the lab is to provide the most effective recommendations to preserve and restore your precious water resource.
One of the main programs we offer is our SeSCRIPT service. The reason we call it SeSCRIPT is because through this service, we provide a prescription for your water resource. To appropriately do this we need to understand a lot of background or baseline information about your water.
Just like an MD would check your height, your weight, your blood pressure, and your heart rate to better understand your health and prescribe a medicine for you, we need you to do this with your pond.
Our PhDs at SePRO, like myself, need to understand water chemistries and the type of algae you may have. This allows us to better prescribe a solution, and meet the needs of your water resource.
During the SeSCRIPT assessment we analyze many parameters, including but not limited to:
Phosphorus concentrations in the water sediments
Chlorophyll A concentrations
These are all critical parameters to understand as we devise a prescription. Even the type of algae you have, and how dense it is, can alter that prescription and the amount of treatment you may need.
It's easy to collect and send in a sample of your water for us to analyze. We'll even provide the containers. You just need to go out to your water body, collect a small amount of water, and ship it to us. We'll analyze it and get back to you in a short period of time with recommendations.
