Isolation and cultivation of filamentous bacteria implicated in activated sludge bulking
To assess different techniques for effective isolation and cultivation of filamentous bacteria in pure culture, activated sludge samples from Durban and surrounding areas were screened microscopically for filamentous morphology.
Biological nitrogen and phosphorus removal by filamentous bacteria in pure culture
The availability of excess nutrients (phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N)) in wastewater systems causes many water quality problems. These problems include eutrophication whereby algae grow excessively…
‘Morphological shifts’ in filamentous bacteria isolated from activated sludge processes
The application of fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) showed filamentous bacteria to be much more diverse in their ability to adapt to their changing enviroments and it remains important that the taxonomic status of filamentousacteria be determined.
ISOLATION AND CULTIVATION OF FILAMENTOUS BACTERIA FROM ACTIVATED SLUDGE
Assessment of different techniques for effective isolation and cultivation of filamentous bacteria in pure culture found the spread plate technique was found to be a much better method for initial inoculation of samples as opposed to the streak plate method.
Biochemical Patterns Of Two Different H. hydrossis Isolates Identified By FISH
Study of isolates of Haliscomenobacter hydrossis (HHY1 and HHY2) on the basis of their biochemistry and physiology may lead to a better understanding of the biochemical and physiological conditions that may incite bulking and/or foaming and a betterUnderstanding of Biological Nutrient Removal systems, areas that are still in need of much attention.
