Six methods for the estimation of microbial biomass were compared for determination ofFrankia cell concentrations. Six strains ofFrankia were cultivated in stationary culture, harvested by centrifugation, washed with saline buffer and diluted to five standardized concentrations. These cell suspensions were then used to assess reliability of each of the biomass determination methods. The destructive total protein determination methods were the most sensitive and reliable. Two non-destructive… CONTINUE READING
