Fuel microbial contamination test. Researcher carrying out a test for fuel microbial contamination using the FUELSTAT (tm) resinae product from Conidia Bioscience. This test is used by airlines, shipping companies and navies to detect the 'diesel bug'. Both the kerosene used in aircraft and the diesel used in boats, are susceptible to microbial growth in fuel tanks that can adversely affect the fuel quality. This test card is being used to test aviation fuel. The results (high and low) are the coloured lines in the test card windows. An improved and faster test, FUELSTAT (tm) resinae PLUS, was announced in 2011.
