Methods based on the application of chromogenic and fluorogenic substrates enable specific and rapid detection of a variety of bacterial enzymatic activities. By using these techniques, enzymatic reactions can be examined simultaneously or individually, either directly on the isolation plate or in cell suspensions. For this purpose, various testing principles and test kits for clinical and food microbiology have been introduced successfully during the last few years. In this paper we present a… CONTINUE READING
