Why use that? - the Fusaric Acid method according to Maloy and Nunn (1981),
J. Bacteriol. 145, 1110-1112, works very well. This is a modification of
another method (Bochner? I don't remember) which was designed for
Salmonella typhimurium. Roughly 80-90% of colonies on these plates were
(in my hands) Tet sensitive.
