Use of high temperature catalytic oxidation ( HTCO ) to measure carbon content of microorganisms

  title={Use of high temperature catalytic oxidation ( HTCO ) to measure carbon content of microorganisms},
  author={S{\'i}lvia and P................... and Pelegri and John Dolan and Fereidoun Rassoulzadegan},
High temperature catalytic oxidation (HTCO) was used for the first time to determine carbon content of heterotrophic protists (the helioflagellate Pteridomonas danica, the dinoflagellate Oxyrrhs manna, and the scuticociliate Uronema sp.) and bacteria (Escherichia coli). This technique has the advantage, over the conventional CHN analysis of glass-fiber filters, of measuring total organic carbon in the liquid phase. Failing to retain small organisms on filters and cell rupture during filtration… CONTINUE READING
