The paper describes a number of tests for the rapid detection of glycosidases including alpha-glucosidase, beta-glucosidase, beta-glucuronidase, beta-xylosidase and alpha-fucosidase. The methods use heavy suspensions of viable but non-multiplying bacteria in a buffered solution of a chromogenic substrate. The results of the tests are readable within 4 h. The application of these tests to a collection of 633 strains of Enterobacteriaceae and Vibrionaceae demonstrates that some of the tests may… CONTINUE READING
