Greetings all
We are trying to measure the growth rate of rhizobium in different carbon
sources but encountering dificulties. The main issue is that in liquide culture
the bacteria seem to create "flakes" rather then homoginios turbidity, so
absorbance seem out of the question. We thought about vortexing the sample and
doing CFU count. Anyone tried this before? Any other ideas?
Thanks Yoram
