BACKGROUND In a wastewater treatment plant, the degradation process is performed by a variable and mixed community of microorganisms in an aerobic aquatic environment. The activated-sludge process is based on the formation of strong microbial flocs where many bacteria are attached to sludge flocs. METHODS Cytometric analysis requires an homogeneous cell suspension and so detachment of bacteria from flocs is required. In this study, sonication and homogenization were compared to find the most… CONTINUE READING
