Assessing bacterial viability

Thursday, 05 February, 2009



Assessment of bacterial viability is crucial to many applications ranging from the production of food and medicine to environmental monitoring.

Traditionally, measurements have been obtained by diluting and plating bacterial cultures, which can take several days. Flow cytometric analysis offers accurate rapid assessment at rates up to 50,000 cells per second.
