Traditionally, samples of fuel were sent to testing locations and results would come back days or weeks later. Now with FUELSTAT, tests are done on-site, right at the tank, and results are given in minutes. So any treatment of the contamination required can be done right there, right then.

Unlike incubating products, FUELSTAT selectively tests for the microbial species known to cause issues, enabling fast, targeted remedial action only where required. FUELSTAT identifies the presence of microorganisms known to contaminate and degrade fuel by detecting their antigens. Antigens act as markers that can be assessed using immunoassay antibody tests. Immunoassay antibody technology is specific which allows FUELSTAT to only identify the presence of fuel degrading microorganisms; other types, such as those that may be found on humans and the surrounding environment and could easily contaminate a test, will not be detected. Sterility and cross-contamination of tests is therefore less of an issue than other techniques.

FUELSTAT is an immunoassay antibody test similar to the pregnancy tests that we are all familiar with, but instead of searching for the markers of pregnancy hormones (HCG), FUELSTAT searches for the markers of the microorganisms that thrive and do damage to fuel systems. The principles of antibody testing in fuels using FUELSTAT: A,B,C... For simplicity let us take a very simple view of microbiological activity in fuels. There are 3 categories of microorganisms that may occur in fuel: (A): microorganisms that are known to thrive in jet fuel and feed on fuel components, i.e. degrade fuel. B: Microorganisms that are classed as secondary degraders (B) and cannot directly feed on fuel. The principle here is that secondary degraders do NOT exist unless (A) group microbes are present to break down the fuel in the first place. They will not multiply, unless significant amounts of A group microbes are present to create food; these organisms are not targeted by FUELSTAT. C: Human, Plant-based airborne and other stray microorganisms (C), that are all around us and could enter the sample during sampling, handling and transport stages. Such organisms are not targeted by FUELSTAT. FUELSTAT, put simply, searches for A group of microorganisms only. Alternative tests based on culture methods or Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) search for potentially A, B and/or C. in variable quantities. Unless the sample is then further analysed by, for example, molecular technology, there is no way of understanding what the result seen by culture or ATP tests may represent.
