aviation fuel test kit diesel test kit

The FUELSTAT fuel test kit is the fastest way to test for bio-contaminants.

Introducing Conidia Biosciences’ breakthrough diesel and aviation fuel test kit, the FUELSTAT. This innovative test kit allows you to detect levels of microbiological contamination, therefore showing whether you have low or high levels of contamination in aviation and diesel fuels.

Know what’s contaminating your diesel and aviation fuel in 10 minutes flat

Hormonconis resinae, aka aviation fuel fungus and the diesel bug, is the most common and damaging contamination in fuel tanks. The FUELSTAT Resinae Plus fuel test kit tests for this and other bacteria and fungi, thereby giving you vital information so you’ll know exactly what course of action to take.

While current technology on the market requires microbiological cultures to be grown taking up to 72 hours to complete, the FUELSTAT is an immunoassay test, and therefore delivers results in just 10 minutes.

Sending your samples to a lab for testing can take days. In that time any microbes present can perish, consequently degrading the sample and also skewing results. Don’t make decisions on the state of your tank based on inaccurate data.

Stop sending your fuel samples to a laboratory and take control of your aviation and diesel fuel testing

The FUELSTAT test kit requires no technical training and no sterile environment, meaning maintenance engineers have real-time information on the state of the tank, therefore allowing you to base decisions about any remedial actions on accurate data.

All you need is a flat surface, a pair of gloves and a FUELSTAT test kit. Each box includes 8 test kits and required sampling equipment.

Detection limit reference points for Fuelstat tests.

i) Fuel Phase:

1) negligible up to 150 ?g/l;

2) moderate 150–750 ?g/l;

3) heavy greater than 750 ?g/l;

ii) Water Phase:

1) negligible up to 33 ?g/ml;

2) moderate 33–166 ?g/ml;

3) heavy greater than 166 ?g/ml.

These are broadly equivalent to the CFU levels below:

iii) Fuel Phase:

1) negligible up to 4000 colony forming units (CFU) per litre;

2) moderate 4000 to 20,000 CFU/litre;

3) heavy greater than 20,000 CFU/litre;

iv) Water Phase:

1) negligible up to 1000 colony forming units (CFU) per ml;

2) moderate 1000 to 10,000 CFU/ml;

3) heavy greater than 10,000 CFU/ml
