Broadsword can provide a detailed threat evaluation of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) threats.

Broadsword can evaluate DNA sequencing results to determine the corrosion potential of the microbial community and from this, a biocidal treatment program can be developed and recommended to a client. For more details regarding chemical treatment programs (including biocides), please refer to the chemical treatment program page.


If clients have existing MIC related data, it can be interpreted to provide the client with a better understanding of the possible MIC issues in their system.
