Rapid methods for the detection of carbohydrate fermentation.


This report deals with a comparative study of typical methods for determining the fermentative abilities of microorganisms. The aim of the first studies was to select the best method for use with members of the Enterobacteriaceae and other easily cultivable species, using as criteria, rapidity, dependability, and simplicity. Later studies have involved… (More)
