In clinical microbiology, gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) is used mainly for the following applications: (1) demonstration of microbial metabolites in cultures: studies of short-chain fatty acids (chain length 2 to 6 carbon atoms) and of the non-volatile lactic and succinic acids are the basis of taxonomy of obligate anaerobes on the genus level. Demonstration of these compounds in spent culture media is also used for identification of anaerobic bacteria in the clinical laboratory. (2… CONTINUE READING
