Background information

Archaea are a group of micro-organisms different from bacteria and eukarya which may contribute up to 20% of Earth's biomass. Most archaea are capable of functioning in extreme habitats, for example in the presence of high temperatures or high salinity.  No evidence is found yet that archaea are pathogenic, but they can cause serious problems in biological processes like biofouling and biocorrosion. Therefore determining whether archaea are present in your sample can in some cases be of great importance.
