WHAT ARE BACTERIA?
One-celled organisms visible only through a microscope. Bacteria live all around us and within us. The air is filled with bacteria, and they have even entered outer space in spacecraft. Bacteria live in the deepest parts of the ocean and deep within Earth. They are in the soil, in our food, and on plants and animals. Even our bodies are home to many different kinds of bacteria.
Certain bacteria produce
antibiotics such as streptomycin. Others live symbiotically in
the guts of animals (including humans) or on the
roots of certain plants, converting nitrogen into a usable form. Bacteria have a wide range of
environmental and nutritive requirements and may
classified into one of three groups based on their response to gaseous oxygen.
Aerobic bacteria thrive in the presence of oxygen and require it for their
continued growth and existence. Anaerobic bacteria cannot tolerate gaseous
oxygen, such as those which live in deep underwater sediments, or those which
cause food poisoning. The third group are the facultative anaerobes, which can
live either in the presence of oxygen or without oxygen.
MICROORGANISMS IN NS SERIES
The NS Series Cultures are microbial strains of naturally occurring microorganisms that are 1,000 times more active than those found in nature. It is therefore important to take cognizance of the fact that colonies of bacteria are literally factories for the production of enzymes. The enzymes which are manufactured by the bacteria will be appropriate to the substrate in which the enzymes will be working and so you have infinite, automatic production of the right enzyme for the biological reduction of any waste material, providing you have the right bacteria to start with.
The microorganisms in NS Series included are :
These are specific strains that the Consumer and Marketing Service, United States Department of Agriculture has authorized for use in federally inspected establishments, including meat and poultry plants. Products are reported in compliance with the U.S. TSCA. None of the NS Series products of this type contain highly basic or caustic chemicals and are thus considered essentially non-hazardous. Even though NS Series products are intended for aquaculture and industrial use only, some of the component enzymes and microbial cultures contained in these products are actually considered GRAS or 'Generally Recognized As Safe' products.
Secondly and most important, there is the fact that these enzyme-culture products have a capability as a microbial seed which allows the bacteria contained in such products to multiply and proliferate within a waste treatment system. As these specific microorganisms in NS Series multiply, they continue to produce more active enzymes, thus magnifying and compounding the original product's effectiveness in preventing occlusions, attacking organic impediments and degrading organic wastes.
