Apparatus and method for achieving reproducible measurements of diauxic lag length and anoxic net maximum specific growth rate.

Abstract

An apparatus for continuous growth of pure bacterial cultures under oxic conditions followed by a switch to anoxic batch conditions was designed. The application of this apparatus gave variability of measured parameters (diauxic lag length, anoxic net maximum specific growth rate) which were significantly lower than the variability of previously reported data. The improvement is attributed to more consistent nitrate reductase levels as a result of achieving steady state under oxic condition prior to switching to anoxic batch conditions.
