Toxicant inhibition in activated sludge: fractionation of the physiological status of bacteria.


In wastewater treatment plants the sensitivity of activated sludge to a toxicant depends on the toxicity test chosen, and thus the use of more than one test is suggested. The physiological status of bacteria in response to toxicants was analysed by flow cytometry to distinguish intact, permeabilised, active cells and cells disrupted. Results were compared… (More)
