Abstract

DIRECT COUNTS OF STAINED BACTERIAL CELLS WERE COMPARED WITHCOUNTS OBTAINED FROM STANDARD PLATING TECHNIQUES. THE METHOD USED BY THE AUTHORS COMBINED ACRIDINE ORANGE STAINING WITH2-(P-IODOPHENYL)-3-(P-NITROPHENYL)-5-PHENYL-TETRAZOLIUM CHLORIDE REDUCTION. TO OVERCOME THE INTERFERENCE OF A MEMBRANE FILTER'S PORES WITH THE IDENTIFICATION OF STAINED CELLS, A GEL-STRIPPING TECHNIQUE WAS USED TO TRANSFER THE BACTERIAL CELLS FROM MEMBRANE FILTERS TO A GELATIN MATRIX BEFORE COUNTS WERE MADE.
