Bacteria isolated from ultrapure water made by a high-purity water manufacturing system in a semiconductor manufacturing plant were classified into two groups which either grew in diluted nutrient broth medium (oligotrophic bacteria) or could not grow (copiotrophic bacteria). The nutritional flexibility of oligotrophic and copiotrophic bacteria was investigated. The oligotrophic bacteria were shown to be able to utilize a significantly broader range of organic substrates than the copiotrophic… CONTINUE READING
