A total of 541 gram-negative nonfermentative bacterial strains comprising 26 species and unclassified groups were characterized by routine diagnostic and carbon substrate alkalinization techniques. These microorganisms were tested for the ability to cause alkalinization of a basal medium on a total of 217 substrates. We found that 58 carbon substrates had… CONTINUE READING
