|ALKEN® 896 BioStimulant is a super concentrated blend of oxygenating inorganic salts, amino acids, purines, pyrimidines, and micro-nutrients designed to stimulate the performance of ALKEN CLEAR-FLO®, ALKEN ENZ-ODOR® , ALKEN® NU-BIND & ALKEN® TREAT-A-LOO microbial formulas, when applied appropriately. Alken 896 BioStimulant is the ONLY known germination catalyst, biostimulant that triggers immediate activity from Bacillus, other gram-positive species (including Brevibacillus, Paenibacillus, Rhodococcus, Sporosarcina & Streptomyces) AND vegetative, gram-negative species (including Acinetobacter, Comamonas, Enterobacter, Marinobacter, Nitrobacter, Nitrosomonas, Paracoccus, Pseudomonas, Sphingomonas, Starkeya & Thiobacillus. When included in a formulated Bacillus product, ALKEN® 896 BioStimulant will stimulate immediate bacterial activation as soon as the ALKEN® BACILLUS STABILIZER 26 formula is diluted sufficiently to allow germination (see formulation directions for use of ALKEN MICROBIAL MANUFACTURING CONCENTRATES (FF, PF or NF). ALKEN® 896 BioStimulant also enhances performance of powdered ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® & ALKEN ENZ-ODOR® products in applications ranging from waste water augmentation (industrial or municipal) to aquaculture and bioremediation of pollution in soil, sand or rocks. When tested alone, ALKEN® 896 BioStimulant rarely works because bacterial strains naturally resident in most wastewater are rarely endowed with the vigorous appetite for difficult compounds, robust health, and pronounced competitiveness that ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® and ALKEN ENZ-ODOR® bacterial consortia deliver worldwide.|

Ten (10) talented cultures used in Alken-Murray's commercial products were selected for comparison testing on Tryptic Soy agar plated media. Standard recipe Tryptic Soy Agar plates, prepared for Alken-Murray by Culture, Media & Supplies of Oswego, IL were used as the "control" plates. AMC President, Valerie Anne Edwards personally prepared the "test plates", using BBL Tryptic Soy Agar powdered media in distilled water, according to directions on the product label, but these plates were amended with ALKEN® 896, as follows: 10 each TSA amended with 1% ALKEN® 896 , 10 amended with 2% ALKEN® 896 , 10 amended with 3% ALKEN® 896, 10 amended with 4% ALKEN® 896, 10 amended with 5% ALKEN® 896 , 10 amended with 6% ALKEN® 896 and finally 10 amended with 7% ALKEN® 896. Media were autoclaved according to label instructions, cooled to 50 degrees C and then plated aseptically. Each culture was streaked onto one plate from the control batch and one plate from each concentration of amended media, labels were affixed and plates were incubated for 24 hours at 30 degrees C. Growth was checked and recorded at 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes and then hourly through 6 hours, again at 12 hours and finally at 24 hours.
