The diagnosis of anaerobes can be difficult to perform, using classical biochemical tests. Characterization of metabolic end-products such as short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) was often used because of their reproducible biosynthesis. Despite this, SCFA are difficult to study using gas chromatography, due to their high volatility. Furthermore, the treatment of the samples are long and fastidious. Capillary electrophoresis and indirect UV detection (CE-indirect UV) is a well-known analytical method… CONTINUE READING
